School Community

We value individual achievement, creativity and personal excellence. We believe it is best achieved within a single sex environment where learning styles specific to girls are understood and best catered for. Our curriculum offers a wide variety of achievement opportunities and we encourage participation in a diverse range of cultural, sporting and service activities.

Our learning and teaching programmes support positive outcomes for our girls. We expect them to work hard to achieve to their potential. We value the partnership between school, students, their families and the wider community towards better achievement for all. We are lucky in that our school is set in attractive and mature grounds.
