The Curriculum

We have a long tradition of providing outstanding education to girls of all abilities, with a strong reputation for nurturing talent and expanding confidence in all the students under our care with our small class sizes and broad curriculum.

Games & the Arts

We offer a range of sports, extra-curricular activities, music concerts and drama performances throughout the year. These activities take place beyond the academic curriculum and form an integral part of the ethos and school life at Adcote.

Pastoral Care

Here at Adcote School our pastoral care and support is excellent. Each area of the school has a Head of Section (Prep, Senior and Sixth Form) and there is a Head of Student Services and a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, for specific concerns. A counsellor comes to school each week if the girls wish to speak to someone from outside of school.

University Places

76% of our Sixth Form students access their first-choice Universities.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Educating girls in a gendered environment specialising in their academic, emotional and physical needs, brings out the very best in young women. Put them in the right environment, nurture them with an effective character building curriculum such as our CLEAR Learning programme and they will thrive and be happy.
