• Learning today:
    leading tomorrow

    At Bentley Wood High School for Girls we are proud of our fine record of academic achievement within our safe, caring, stimulating environment where pupils learn happily and well. We encourage each girl to develop a wide range of skills and interests, to achieve her personal best and to work co operatively with consideration for all members of our learning community at all times.

  • STEM subjects and careers are the foundations in driving innovation, growth and economic recovery. In 2013 the government reported that there is a shortage of STEM skills in the UK workforce, with 42% of employers reporting difficulties recruiting STEM-proficient staff. Here at Bentley Wood, we recognise the vital part we play in inspiring our girls to be motivated and enthused by such subjects and careers.
