At The Mount School York we benefit from a spacious 16 acre campus providing girls with a safe and secure place to learn.

Specialist teaching and dedicated facilities provide girls with opportunities that stretch them to think, collaborate and grow.
A supportive, compassionate, and caring community allows girls the space to thrive.

Like many people across the world The Mount community has adapted to a new way of working and living with the Covid-19 pandemic. At The Mount we are very fortunate to have a 16-acre campus with large classrooms, dedicated study areas and ample outdoor space.  This provides our girls with a safe and secure environment for them to continue their education with very little disruption to their normal routines.

The smaller nature of our School, class sizes and Year groups means that girls can relax and socialise in the space around them with their friends. Driven by our Quaker principles, we place an emphasis on respecting and valuing every individual with staff and girls looking out for and caring for one another. Our team of expert pastoral staff provide  support for every pupil. As we know the girls well, we can identify when they may require a little more support.

Our priority is and always will be to create an environment where girls feel protected and happy. We are currently following the Government’s Covid-19 guidelines and there are many safety measures in place. We have enhanced our cleaning regime, provided hand sanitiser and encourage regular handwashing. The girls quickly adapted to the measures, demonstrating the resilience and confidence we are proud to nurture in Mount girls.

The Mount continues to be progressive in the use of Digital Technology. Teachers are skilled in delivering lessons using a variety of platforms. They utilise apps and software in their teaching. Our pupils confidently and safely use Microsoft Teams as well as other software to enhance and reinforce their learning. As such, The Mount is well equipped to provide Remote Learning for pupils of all ages. Read more about The Mount’s Lockdown Learning here.

At The Mount we are leaders in educating girls and understanding their needs. As the needs of girls change, we are confident that we have the space to evolve. Our aim will always be to ensure Mount girls are equipped with the skills, ambition, and courage to succeed, in everything they aspire to do and anything they aspire to be.
