Ethos and Values
For most girls, a single-sex school is the best place to learn, fully preparing them for life and consistently producing the best exam results in national league tables. Why, in the 21st Century, is this still true?
We can give girls the chance to take risks again and again, building their resilience and self-belief. Bright girls can be perfectionists. Being proud of a job well done so that you can move onto the next task is essential for good time-management, and is critical for all women!
Girls are often modest about their achievements. Knowing that they can succeed in many different ways can help them feel good about themselves, boosting their self-esteem. At girls' schools they are the leaders in all fields, in sport, in houses, in mentoring: positive role models that inspire students of all ages. Our students can throw themselves enthusiastically into sport and other physical activities without worrying about how they look.
Girls and boys learn differently and we can reflect these differences. Collaborative working in pairs or groups, as well as on their own, is great for girls. But when friends fall out it can seem like the end of the world. Our experienced teachers can help girls to bounce back.
Our students have plenty of friends who are boys, through activities they enjoy outside school and collaborative events here, but we believe that their academic performance and confidence is raised in an all girls' school.
