Senior School

In the senior school we have a dynamic and friendly atmosphere where every girl is respected and valued as an individual. 

We are proud of our pastoral care where we work as a team to help each girl be happy, involved and develop her unique talents. Our welfare officer, counsellor, form tutors and head of year form the basis of a network of support available to the girls in school.

Our girls are put first in everything we do and they are encouraged to be the best they can in everything to which they apply themselves.

Success is not just seen as excelling but also as facing challenges and learning to cope with all that growing up brings. Our pupils play an active role in the local community and take seriously their responsibility for the welfare of others.

Doing the right thing is not always easy but the girls aim to be open, honest and accountable. Teamwork, leadership, energy, courage, confidence, compassion, courtesy, integrity and above all a sense of humour are at the heart of everything.

By the time they enter the Sixth Form they have developed their own style, are fully prepared for today’s ever changing world and really are ready for the next challenge
