Students are taught in small classes by teachers with a deep enthusiasm for their subjects. We are committed to providing high-quality teaching which develops intellectually curious, self-motivated, enthusiastic young women with an enduring love of learning.
Games & The Arts
We understand that every student is an individual, and appreciate the talent and potential of all our pupils. College offers a programme of over 160 co-curricular opportunities, including over 30 different sports and multiple drama performances and music concerts throughout the year.
Pastoral care isn’t something that happens when things go wrong; it’s a constant support system for each girl’s time in College. Our academic staff, tutors, house system, chaplain and medical centre create a pastoral network to support every girl, from the reserved to the extrovert. Pupils also undertake a wide range of activities as part of a whole-school Wellbeing Programme.
Our dedicated Professional Guidance Centre offers a wealth of insight, expertise and opportunities to help encourage, guide, support and embolden students as they strive to find the right path. The Centre runs comprehensive programmes to support students applying for higher education, both in the UK and abroad, including specialist provision for US and Oxbridge applications.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
A 21st century education needs to inspire, prepare and equip young people to sustain a lifetime of independently sought learning, and give them the flexibility and resourcefulness to flourish in our rapidly changing world. Academic excellence forms the basis of College life, but girls also embrace the co-curricular programme, develop a global outlook, and enrich the communities to which they belong.
College was founded in 1853 with the purpose of providing girls with a thorough academic education. We remain committed to that pioneering goal, and pupils from all corners of the globe benefit from the knowledge and expertise gained from over 160 years of putting girls first and pursuing educational opportunities for young women. Girls are at the heart of all we do and we are ambitious for their futures.
