The Mount School York is a happy, busy and thriving community.

At The Mount we provide girls with the skills and opportunities to achieve their dreams through an educational experience that is second to none. We are leaders in educating girls and understanding their needs. We empower girls to be who they want to be. We know girls can, and girls do at The Mount.

The Mount is a school with a rich heritage and history of success.

Since its foundation in 1785, The Mount has been innovative and pioneering in its approach to girls’ education. A unique environment, The Mount will allow your daughter to flourish and become the very best she can be. By providing challenge and opportunities our girls build their confidence and resilience to make the most of their individual strengths as they embrace life. Our pupils are considerate, caring, confident, articulate, and well-balanced individuals who are tremendously passionate about life – everything you would want a daughter of yours to be.

The Mount is the place in York to educate girls.

With an outward-looking tradition of producing independent-minded, trailblazing young women, with self-confidence, drive and determination.  Mount girls go out and make a difference in the ever changing world. We do not just provide a first class education, we develop character and equip girls with the knowledge and social skills to thrive enabling Mount girls make their mark on the world.

At The Mount girls learn without limits and academic excellence abounds.

Teachers inspire and tailor the learning experiences to the needs of girls. Our girls strive for personal excellence whilst being free to be themselves. They take the lead and yet collaborate effectively, respecting and valuing every individual. They live adventurously and are ready to take a risk when required, to achieve at the highest level. Sport, music, drama, art, whatever their talent, girls excel and fulfil their ambitions. Extra-curricular activities are an important part of the school day, every day.

Our extensive day School is enhanced by our fantastic boarding environment. Boarders join us from all over the world, including Asia, Africa, mainland Europe, and of course the UK. The Mount is a rich and diverse community with so much to offer every child.

I am immensely proud to be Principal of The Mount School and it is a pleasure to be part of such a remarkable community.
