In 2018 Maltman’s Green will celebrate its 100th Anniversary by launching the ‘100 Club’ – a Bursary fund to benefit girls who would otherwise be unable to afford a Maltman’s education.
Funds will be generated by donors – members of the 100 Club – who will be commemorated in a permanent installation at the School. Headmistress, Mrs Joanna Pardon, says, “We are aware of the excellent education offered at Maltman’s Green but appreciate how difficult this can be to access for many families. We hope that our 100 Club Bursary fund will be a life changing opportunity for young girls who wouldn’t ordinarily have the means to join us.”
Able to adapt, evolve and respond to shifts in the education sector, family life and society at large, Maltman’s Green has continually provided a high-class, preparatory education for young girls. This is proven through its girls’ exceptional performance in the Buckinghamshire 11+ and Independent School exams, sporting competitions and musical shows.
Headmistress of the day, Beatrice Chambers, opened her school for girls in 1918 – the same year women first won the vote – and one hundred years later, Maltman’s Green still follows her example, teaching its pupils to be independent and courageous, inspiring an attitude of self-belief and self-worth.
Success is also measured through the “outstanding” pastoral care (most recent ISI report 2013) and progressive approach to learning support. Not least, the School has seen numerous developments and upgrades to its facilities including dedicated subject classrooms, a 6-lane, 25-metre indoor swimming pool, a multi-use gymnasium and state-of-the art theatre space. In addition a dedicated 2-3yr olds day-care facility completes the excellent suite of facilities which are complemented by the dedicated, well-qualified and experienced body of staff who enable Maltman’s Green to provide an outstanding and unique level and breadth of opportunities for its girls.
Maltman’s Green has seen just seven headmistresses over its 100-year history, a testament to its firm foundations and healthy, supportive environment. As Mrs Pardon, enters her 13th year, she says “I am energised by the enthusiasm of the girls, the strength of my staff and the spirit of the School itself.” Such strong and stable leadership means that Maltman’s Green can look confidently to the next hundred years with every expectation for continued success, development and happiness of its girls.
