Welcome to Prendergast School

Welcome to our school website.

I feel proud and privileged to be Headteacher of Prendergast School and Prendergast 6th Form which I have been leading for seven years. Prendergast has been educating girls in the borough of Lewisham for 125 years. We have been ranked as Outstanding by Ofsted on three consecutive occasions.

Prendergast is a girls’ school from years 7 to 11 with 4 forms of entry. The 6th Form is co-educational and offers primarily level 3 courses. We expect our girls to achieve highly and stay on in the 6th Form. In the 6th Form we also have the expectation that students will work hard, reach their potential and gain places at University. Our results are outstanding at GCSE and A Level and this year at GCSE 37% of grades were A* or A; at A Level 51% of grades were A* - B.

However, our school is far more than exams. We pride ourselves on our pastoral care and on knowing each pupil individually. Our students participate in a very wide range of activities and there are many residential trips from year 7 to 6th form. We expect our students to be well behaved, good citizens able to help each other, the local community and themselves.
