Senior School Staff

Our Senior school teaching staff are great enthusiasts for their subjects, they enjoy instilling in pupils  this same passion for their subject. Small pupil numbers allow strong relationships to develop between teachers and pupils.  Our teachers know every one of their pupils, allowing them to provide the best guidance and support to each individual.

Pre-School and Junior School Staff

Our Pre-School and Junior School Staff are all highly skilled in the teaching of young girls. They are committed to making sure each pupil receives the individual attention and support they need to nurture their talent and abilities from a young age. The small family nature of the School means our staff know and care for every pupil in the School.
