St Saviour’s and St Olave’s is a popular oversubscribed Church of England comprehensive girls’ school with Specialist Science Status. The school has interesting roots going back to 1562 under the Charter of Elizabeth I. Every member of the community is valued and there are high expectations of all and from all. The ethos of the school is built on Christian principles; care and support; challenge with academic rigour and excellent relationships throughout the whole school community. Students have said that they feel safe and appreciate having a voice in the school.

The school is an oasis for staff and students in the middle of inner London. We are an inclusive multi-cultural school which admits students of other faiths and no faiths as well as Christians.

The school takes full advantage of a host of world class educational and cultural opportunities. We are recognised as providing outstanding enrichment involving a wide range of activities and including every member of staff and all students. There are field study courses, school journeys at home and abroad, theatre and gallery visits. Music flourishes and there are opportunities for participation in, for example, Mandarin, drama, basketball, rowing, zumba and the work of the chaplaincy as well as homework clubs in every subject area. A contribution to the extra-curricular life of the school is expected from all staff.

There are 769 students including 148 in our sixth form. Student data shows that 48% of year 7 – 11 students qualify for pupil premium. Over 50 different home languages are spoken and 16% are on the SEN register. Most teaching is done in mixed ability groups, although there is some setting in English, Maths, Science and MFL. In years 10 and 11 all students follow a broad common core with additional “option” subjects. A broad range of subjects are offered in the sixth form to enable students to follow their own personalised timetable.
