Welcome to Park School for Girls

Ilford’s only Independent all-through Girls’ School  

A nurturing all-through school where pupils benefit from small class sizes, personalised education and outstanding teaching and learning. 

Prep School pupils enjoy a robust and stimulating learning experience in a nurturing environment and are well prepared for transition into secondary education.

Senior School pupils consistently over-perform in their GCSEs by over a whole grade, when compared to external baseline data and go on to attend a range of top-performing grammar and local independent schools.  I am delighted to announce that for the academic year 2020-21, 72% of all students achieved grades 9 – 8;  84% of all students achieved grades 9 – 7 and 92% of students achieved grades 9 – 6.

Park School for Girls (Senior) is currently placed 14th nationally in the category of ‘Independent schools, small or with no 6th form’ for GCSE results for 2020 (The Sunday Times Best Schools Guide).

Testimonials from parents and students

As parents we couldn’t think of a better place other than P.S.F.G to send our daughter. Everyone from the admin office to the teaching staff is a great asset of P.S.F.G. Each and every member of staff are playing their part to help develop our daughters in to intelligent, compassionate young ladies. I would also like to state in my humble opinion the school has benefited greatly by your unique and approachable leadership, the warmth and empathy you show to all parents is infectious and having a great impact on the school.

I hope you are in good health and safe. I would like to inform you regarding how wonderful all the teachers are in supporting the girls on Dojo, on Zoom and all the YouTube videos. You as a school are doing a great job in these hard times.

Just to say a big thank you and much appreciation for all the wonderful support the whole team at Park School have given since the pandemic. Our daughter has progressed well and enjoyed her remote lessons and credit to the whole school along with your leadership there’s been excellent communication and direction during these unprecedented times.

Just stopping by to say hello and thank you to you, Mrs Nicholas, all staff members/teachers for supporting the girls virtually. I do know there must be lot of effort and hard work must be going on at the background to aid the virtual lessons, really appreciate that.

My daughter is enjoying this digital class and to interact with you and her friends. She has got her routine now. She always looks forward to attend her lessons.

I have never seen a school like Park school it feels like one whole big family rather than a school. Everyone there are so kind supportive and welcoming.

Thank you, for all the help and support you are doing at this difficult time in lock done time, I really enjoy learning in online classes and love listening to your interesting poems and lovely songs in assemblies. I hope you have a wonderful day and have a great time with your family.

Good afternoon ma’am and thank you ma’am!

I have once again realised the Park School Way mirrored even into our remote learning as well as our ability as a school to perform on the whole even if we aren't in school. I have also seen how certain other schools or students have not been able to climb the wall over remote learning yet. I cannot thank you enough for carrying our own school through this so smoothly, I feel as if I have still learnt so much after a remote lesson just as I would in class. Although I have grown up constantly surrounded by drones and smartphones etc. I still heavily admire how we have been so innovative using software like Teams as well as our willpower, motivation and personal morals.
