With over 150 years’ experience in delivering specialist girls’ education, boarding is at the heart of our success, a community in which girls are happy and successful, building confidence and high self-esteem, while fostering qualities such as courage, loyalty, compassion and integrity. A challenging curriculum promotes intellectual rigour, creative enquiry and critical thinking.
We have excellent academic results, a broad curriculum to ensure that every opportunity is open to every girl. Our girls leave as well-educated, well-rounded and well-balanced young women, who are able to navigate a global, multi-cultural, technology-driven world, successfully.
At Sixth Form, the offer of two academic programmes (A Levels and the IB Diploma) is a unique offering in the local area, which ensures the needs and strengths of all of our students are well supported. Both routes allow students to pursue their passions and facilitate entry to the highest quality universities in the United Kingdom, Europe, USA, China, Hong Kong, Canada and others as demand dictates. 99% of our students gained places at their chosen University in 2016 as a result of our excellent Higher Education support.
An added bonus, a short walk brings our boarders to the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath, which is small enough to be safer and have a community feel yet large enough to have cinemas, theatres, shops, cafes. As members of the Girls’ Day School Trust, the largest single of education provider in the UK, we enjoy benefits such as competitive fees due to economies of scale, shared good practice and the chance for 26 girls’ schools to meet and inspire each other. The Alumnae with 70,000 members offers excellent networking possibilities in all fields across the globe.
