As part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, we share their values. We’re here to help every girl fulfil her potential and her dreams, and 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

We always put the girls first. They are the focus of everything we do.


We are fearless. We act and speak with conviction and commitment and we are not afraid of thinking differently.


We are forward-thinking. We stay ahead through purposeful innovation.


We are a family of schools. We support each other and share our learning across our unique network.
