Centre of Excellence

The new Sixth Form Centre at Putney High School for the Girls’ Day School Trust has now been completed and Time and Leisure have called it a “Centre of Excellence” saying that “it appears to have more in common with a university than a sixth form college”.  One of the students at the school was given the chance to describe the centre in her own words.  “When we heard that Putney was going to build a new state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre, no one quite anticipated just how fantastic it was going to be.  Being a member of Sixth Form Consulting, I personally had some insight into what was to be expected.  But even for me is was absolutely astonishing how impressive our new centre was”.
