                   of Wandsworth where creativity
                 and individual talents are nourished
                             Marta Correia explains the importance of bilingual education
                                 and how APSoL can prepare children for the future

                  What´s your vision for
                  Our vision is to provide
                  all children with an
                  inspirational creative
                  curriculum, with rich
                  language provision,
where everyone can learn two languages,
developing a global citizenship mindset.
We believe in nurturing individual talents
and interests from the start, providing
children with a range of wider curricular
opportunities to build on these. In every
lesson, teachers lay the foundations for
pupils to build on their own creativity and
confidence. This knowledge then allows
pupils to explore their learning further
and deeper, through investigation and
opportunities that promote critical thinking.

Language is very important, how do you
champion this?

Sutton High School GDST is an independent day school for girls from
3-18 and is part of the Girls Day School Trust.

Our school is vibrant and diverse and our girls are proud to be part
of our energetic and forward-thinking community. At the heart of our
offer are the core values of courage, truth and joy.

We inspire and nurture individuality - you will not find a particular
‘type’ here. Our girls learn to find their own voice and be confident
in who they are. Our size allows us to know and value every girl
and we place enormous emphasis on both self-respect and respect
for others. We know that girls do better when they feel better, so
their wellbeing is our central focus. Every girl will find her own path
here and she will forge that path with support from passionate and
dedicated staff, committed to her success.

Beyond the classroom, our girls’ experiences are vast and varied.
From our many co-curricular clubs to a comprehensive schedule
of day-trips and residential visits as far-reaching as the Galapagos
Islands, the opportunities are endless. As part of the Girls’ Day
School Trust, our girls have access to a much wider network,
which offers them trust-wide conferences, competitions and learning

The Schools Guide

           Education expert Sue Laidlaw on how to select a school where your child will thrive,
                             plus all you need to know about Open Days…

Choosing a school for your child is,
somewhat bizarrely, rather like buying
a house! On paper, you may have a few
choices that all look good and “tick the
boxes” but somehow you are drawn to one
rather than the others.

At Laidlaw Education, we have been
advising parents for decades on the best
options for their child and most of them,
myself included, will look at the factual
information and try to decide by comparing
schools accordingly. But, like buying houses,
don’t be afraid of your gut instinct. Embrace
that part of your decision-making, along
with your quantitative evaluation. If you, as
parents, feel comfortable and at home in a
school, it almost always follows that your
child will be too.

So where do you start? When you begin to
think about a prospective school for your
