The Curriculum

Designed to offer breadth and opportunity, all girls are encouraged to explore a wide range of subjects at the beginning of their school career, covering all key areas including languages, sport and creative disciplines.

Games & The Arts

JAGS has fantastic sports facilities including a state-of-the-art pool, gym and dance studios, as well as 22 acres of playing fields. Art, drama and music are celebrated; the school is equipped with a purpose-build theatre and a brand new Community Music Centre.

Pastoral Care

The school offers a strong network of support from form tutors up to the Deputy Head Pastoral.  School nurses are there to deal with medical and personal problems as well as a range of inhouse and external counselling options. The House and Sister schemes ensure that girls are there to support each other. Talks from experts are regularly arranged for pupils, parents and staff.

University Places

Most girls move onto university with a high percentage of girls regularly accepting places at Oxford and Cambridge.
