Above all, we pride ourselves on attaining the highest standards; promoted through personal care and encouragement and achieved through respect for tradition and openness to innovation.

A supportive and welcoming environment, a dedicated staff and a rich mix of activities make for a stimulating and rewarding education within the school. We encourage each girl to develop a variety of practical skills, an enquiring mind, a range of interests and consideration for others. Our belief in the moral purpose of the learning experience we provide is summed up by our school motto: ‘Not for our own advantage but for the common good’. We provide an extensive range of opportunities so that our students flourish as thoughtful, caring, confident and assured young adults ready to begin the next stage of their lives.
