About Notting Hill and Ealing School

Notting Hill and Ealing High School is an independent school for girls aged 4 – 18 in Ealing, London. Founded in 1873, it is one of the 26 schools that make up the Girls’ Day School Trust. It has a Junior Department of 310 girls (ages 4–11) and a Senior Department of 600 girls (ages 11–18).[1] The current Headmaster is Mr Matthew Shoults. Mrs Silvana Silva is Head of the Junior School.

Since being founded in 1873, the school has changed both its location and its name. When the Girls’ Day School Trust, then the Girls’ Public Day School Trust, was formed in 1872, it established its first two schools in West London. In January 1873, the Trust opened Chelsea High School (a predecessor of Kensington Preparatory School) to serve the area immediately to the west of the centre of the city and nine months later, Notting Hill High School which was to serve families in the area to the north of Hyde Park. Harriet Morland Jones was the founding head who looked after ten pupils assisted by her sister. Jones retired in 1900 and controversially Ethel Gavin was appointed instead of an internal heir apparent and resignations followed. Gavin became an “capable and experienced headmistress” until 1908 when she moved to the GPDST school at Wimbledon.

The school originally occupied premises in Norland Square but eventually outgrew these and moved to Ealing in 1931 and became known as Notting Hill and Ealing High School for Girls. Following the Education Act 1944 it became a direct grant grammar school in 1946. When the direct grant scheme was abolished in 1976, it became an independent school.
