We are proud of our diverse and inclusive community, one that is expertly led by outstanding educators who ignite curiosity and imagination every day and encourage our girls to embrace knowledge and discovery. We prepare our students to face the world with courage, confidence and ambition, ready for the challenges beyond school.

A sense of happy purpose strikes you as soon as you meet the girls. This tone of dynamic energy and challenge is set by their inspirational teachers. Recognising that success and purpose stem from feeling valued, we work hard together to ensure that our girls feel supported and secure at all times in school.

The Junior School provides the perfect foundation for the girls’ successful transfer into our Senior School. Intellectual curiosity and in-depth learning are encouraged through research, general knowledge, open-ended investigations and collaborative learning activities. The curriculum is rich, stimulating, varied and challenging, enabling girls to develop their skills and passions.

Both pupils and staff are encouraged to find and develop their passions and talents, through clubs, societies and an extensive programme of CPD.
