Sir William Perkins's School

Sir William Perkins’s School is about more than achieving excellent grades; our aim to build confidence, integrity and excellence pervades all that we do, in and out of the classroom. Our community thrives on an exchange of ideas, and we see no boundaries to learning – either global or intellectual. We aim for cultural literacy to give young women the education to lead happy, successful and fulfilling lives and ready to take on the world!

From bullet trains to driverless cars: where is transport going?

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
