The most recent Ofsted report found that "harmonious relationships, excellent behaviour and diligent application combine to make this a school where girls feel very happy and safe... Teaching and learning are good and pupils achieve well. Standards are above average... The personal development of the girls, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, is outstanding."
The Green School was originally a Sunday school for girls founded in 1796. It educated girls rejected from the heavily oversubscribed Blue School (now Isleworth and Syon School). The name supposedly originates from the fact that the school away gave free green clothes for the girls to wear as a uniform. In 1906 the Duke of Northumberland whose estate was Syon Park donated a new building at Busch Corner in London Road, Isleworth, which is still occupied by the school. The junior school closed in 1919. Some of the buildings suffered damage during the Blitz in 1940 on three separate occasions. The school campus underwent some renovations and additions over the years but still largely occupies the original buildings.
The Green School splits girls into five different houses from Year 7 to Year 11; each house is named after a tree and has a distinct colour.
