The school is a Christian foundation, but welcomes girls of all faiths and none. It is committed to the contribution it makes to society as a whole, and to equal opportunities, and it embraces diversity.
Our school was founded in in Redcross Street, in the parish of St. Giles, Cripplegate, as a charity school for the education and clothing of 50 poor girls, using money left from the will of Lady Eleanor Holles. By the late nineteenth century, this school had expanded to educating over girls and had become what we would recognise as a primary school.
This school opened in Hackney in and provided a much wider secondary-style curriculum. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the Trustees had closed the elementary school in Cripplegate to concentrate on the school in Hackney which, bywas recognised as part of the national provision for secondary education for girls as day scholars. Girls were admitted by entrance examination and the school was fee-paying.
As Hackney became more industrialised, and, with more schools for girls in the area than were needed, the Governors decided to close the school in Hackney and to take the traditions, foundation funds, and name of Lady Eleanor Holles to Hampton. In six staff and six pupils from the Hackney school moved to temporary accommodation in Teddington, whilst a purpose-built school was completed on the current site. From the s, there has been a keen focus by successive Head Mistresses, supported by the governing body and parents, on expanding the scale and facilities of the school to provide both an enhanced curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
