City of London Girls’
Founded in the City in 1894, it is situated in the heart of the Barbican. It is a very well-equipped establishment and a new gym and dance studio has opened recently. Its central location gives it a very wide catchment area: pupils come from all over London and the home counties. It is strong academically and examination results are very good. The music, drama and art departments are especially strong. The majority of the school is involved in music and drama with frequent opportunities for pupils to perform. There is a good range of clubs and societies, often run by sixth-form pupils. Being in the centre of London, there are numerous opportunities for cultural trips to the theatre, art galleries and museums, as well as a wide range of careers lectures from those in business and the professions. Many activities and outings are in association with the boys’ school, only 10 minutes walk away. The Corporation of London provides opportunities for girls to participate in a variety of civic functions.
