I know that Notre Dame Girls in Cobham have students at County and National Level in Tennis, Swimming, Netball etc Believe they have some very good Gymnasts as well. Good school just south of Kingston and off the A3 if that helps. Great Headmistress who gets the best from each pupil.

Surbiton High School - when we looked there last year there were several national level gymnasts who performed during the open afternoon (two of them were in the group Spellbound who won Britain's Got Talent last year - so we were told !)

Surbiton High sweeps the board nationally for schools at gymnastics, they have one of the national coaches on staff and a large number of the national squad at the school. They got the older girls and the coach from I think it was St Davids in Ashford that closed down, and a lot of younger girls have followed.
Surbiton are currently building a full size sprung floor gymnastics centre at their Hinchley Wood site. It is rumoured that one of the top national gymnastics club want use of it out of school hours which will attract more gymnasts to Surbiton High.
SH does take gymnastics very seriously. DD is in year 3 and has friends who attend clubs 7 days a week already!!

Herts has several very sporty schools but these may be too far out for you. Queenswood Hockey and Tennis, Habs and St Albans all rounders, St Albans especially good at Netball. DG

If you would consider boarding or flexi boarding, highly recommend Headington School Oxford. Lost of London girls there. V sporty and great academically too. Gets the best out of the girls.
