Girls' Day School Trust

We’re proud to be part of the Girls’ Day School Trust. No other school in the region can offer young girls all the amazing benefits of being part of such a unique and forward thinking organisation.

What is the GDST?

It’s the UK’s leading network of independent girls’ schools. As an organisation, we educate around 8% of all girls at UK independent schools. There’re about 20,000 pupils in the 23 GDST schools and two academies throughout England and Wales. All but two of our schools educate girls all the way through from the age of three or four to 18.




Who are we?

We’re a modern, vibrant organisation, with a passion not just for educating girls but also for equipping them for life. We want girls to do well, to be happy and to leave us with confidence, ready to take on the world.

Why are we the GDST?

In other words, why are we girls-only? It’s simple. Experience has taught us girls not only work better, but also develop more readily and have more confidence and composure to stretch themselves in a mutually supportive environment. Find our more about the benefits of an all-girls education.

How does the GDST work?

Each of our schools and academies is different. But like a family, each of us shares some of our DNA with the others. Running through us all is the belief that each girl is unique and needs to be encouraged in her own way.
