At the Open Evening the feel was of a very positive, focused environment - which felt supportive of learning but also of helping girls find their passion, ambition and confidence. Very impressed with their nurturing drive. Parent of new girl for Autumn 2013

We were completely bowled over on our visit in Year 5 and visited again in Year 6, when our expectations were once again surpassed. We had earmarked other schools but decided to put CGA first. The calibre of staff and the confidence of the students were both hugely impressive. Parent of new girl for Autumn 2013

Clapton Girls' Academy is special as every effort is made to make the girls feel nurtured. Learning is fun and teachers find out what inspires each student, involving families in that support wherever possible. Andrea Sinclair, Parent & member of the Parent Association
