Our staff are experts in the teaching of girls and specialists in their subject. Small pupil numbers allow strong relationships to develop between teachers and girls.

“Pupils in lessons were exuberantly confident. This is supported by the very warm relationships evident between pupils and staff as well as the value placed by staff on pupils’ interests and happiness.”
