Creating an environment where every girl is valued and able to flourish and grow in confidence is at the heart of The Mount School ethos
Based on the Quaker Values of simplicity, truth, equality, peace and social justice our School Ethos acts as a foundation upon which the whole community and learning environment is built. Girls at the Mount School York are happy, compassionate and caring and our aim is to help them become incredible self-aware individuals, confident to stand up for what they believe, showing passion in argument without arrogance, whilst being tolerant and accepting other viewpoints.
The Mount School Values are reflected in every aspect of School life.
The Mount School Learning Wheel connects our School Values to the teaching and learning throughout The Mount School.
