Our values

As part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, we’re here to empower and enable the next generations of women, to equip them with the ability to lead and make a difference in the world.

Girls first

Put the girls’ interests, happiness and wellbeing first at all times.


Work together productively in school, within our family of schools and in the community.


Take risks, push hard and overcome setbacks. Do things in a new way. Have a go. Have fun.
