St Gabriel’s is a co-educational day school, where pupils excel and reach their true potential through a balanced and inspiring education, which combines academic rigour, breadth of opportunity and a strong sense of community.
As a school, our responsibility is to provide each pupil with the right combination of opportunities and challenges to create a pathway for academic success while at the same time unlocking and developing the talents of each individual pupil to give them the confidence and self-belief to pursue their ambitions.
The curriculum is regularly reviewed to ensure that it is broad and well-balanced, providing an education that is relevant for the 21st Century. Inspirational teaching delivered by highly qualified and dedicated staff encourages pupils to question, to think critically, to work collaboratively, to persevere and to celebrate each other’s achievements, while equipping them with the skills and experiences required to succeed in their careers beyond St Gabriel’s.
Examinations are seen as a pathway to achieving personal goals and our academic team encourage, motivate, and support all our pupils to pursue their aspirations. The school has an excellent academic record with examination results at both A Level and GCSE being consistently high. In 2022, 60% of GCSE results were grade 9–7 and 51% of A Level grades were A*– A. St Gabriel’s is justly proud of its students’ achievements and it is not surprising that they go on to study a wide and diverse range of courses at their chosen universities.
The school provides a wide range of opportunities outside of the classroom and by encouraging pupils to express themselves in different ways creates a happy and rewarding educational environment. Numerous activities and visits extend and enrich pupils’ learning experience and pupils are positively encouraged to try new things. The performing and creative arts, sport and a wide range of clubs and societies ensure that pupils progress to the next stage of their education with confidence.
The school welcomes children of all faiths and combines traditional Christian values with strong pastoral care to provide a progressive, ‘real world’ safe, happy and supportive environment. A strong moral code ensures pupils leave the school as well-balanced, unpretentious individuals with the confidence to be assertive and decisive with warmth and without arrogance.

Bursaries & Scholarships
The Governors and Principal of St Gabriel’s are committed to making St Gabriel’s accessible to pupils who would otherwise not be able to enjoy the benefits of the education we offer. Our bursaries, known as Montagu Awards, are means-tested and reviewed annually. They may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on fees, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants. Montagu Awards are available to the parents and or guardians of children entering the Senior School and Sixth Form. The awards, made at the Principal’s discretion, are offered to students who show particular academic ability or to Art, Performing Arts or Sports scholars.
Any parent or guardian seeking a bursary must register their child for a place in the Senior School or Sixth Form and complete a Montagu Award Form below. Their application for the Montagu Award should also be supported by their child’s current Head Teacher in the form of a written recommendation. All Montagu Award candidates will be required to sit the School’s entrance exams before their application is considered. Candidates will be informed in writing within one week of the Scholarship Days whether they have been successful.
Scholarship awards at St Gabriel’s recognise the pursuit of learning at a level of excellence, Academic, Art, Performing Arts (Music, Dance and Drama) and Sport scholarships are awarded at 11+, 13+ and 16+ entry.
Scholars are expected to make a significant contribution to school life through their enthusiasm and commitment to the particular area for which they have been recognised. Progress will be monitored and scholars will be invited to a review meeting to discuss progress and future goals as they begin and complete each section of the school: Lower School (Years 7 and 8); Middle School (Years 9-11) and the Sixth Form. Whilst some of our scholarships attract a modest monetary award, the majority are awarded in recognition of the prestige that they bring.
Scholarships awarded in Year 7 and Year 9 are tenable until the end of Year 11, when students may apply for a Sixth Form Scholarship. All awards are subject to a satisfactory annual review. The number of individual scholarships awarded each year depends solely on the calibre of the candidates. There is no limit to the number of scholarships the school awards; St Gabriel’s looks for a level of excellence in order to award a Scholarship.Find out more >
