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

SPACE TO PLAY
Our specialist Early Years Classrooms, ample outdoor space and forest area sparks girls’ curiosity through exploration and play.

SPACE TO GROW
Specialist teaching and dedicated facilities provide girls with opportunities that stretch them to think, collaborate and grow.

SPACE TO THRIVE
A supportive, compassionate, and caring community allows girls the space to thrive.

SPACE TO ACHIEVE
The Mount empowers all girls to challenge themselves and to have the confidence to achieve.

SPACE TO ADAPT
Like many people across the world The Mount community is adapting to a new normal – a new way of working and living with the Covid-19 pandemic. At The Mount we are very fortunate to have a spacious campus with large classrooms, dedicated study areas and ample outdoor space. Social distancing has been effectively implemented across the site. This provides our girls with a safe and secure environment for them to continue their education with very little disruption.

SPACE TO TEACH
We continue to teach our full bespoke curriculum, from Early Years to Sixth Form. All year groups are taught by a team of specialist teachers. We still offer, music and drama lessons, sport and games, extra-curricular activities, and our unique Global Thinking programme. Through these opportunities’ girls continue their personal development, learn new skills, challenge themselves, build confidence and have fun!

SPACE TO CARE
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. We provide personalised pastoral support for every pupil and have a team of expert pastoral staff. As we know the girls well, we can identify when they may require a little more support.

SPACE TO PROTECT
Our priority is and always will be to create an environment where pupils feel protected and happy. We are currently following the Government guidelines and there are many safety measures in place. These include a one-way system around the site, staggered lunch times, the wearing of a face covering for visitors and for Senior School staff and pupils in communal areas and staggered lunchtimes. The guidelines have been communicated to the girls in age appropriate way. We have also enhanced our cleaning regime, provided hand sanitiser and encourage regular handwashing. The girls have quickly adapted to the measures, demonstrating the resilience and confidence we are proud to nurture in Mount girls.

SPACE TO PROGRESS
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. Throughout the Summer Term lockdown, all the girls remained engaged with the curriculum. The girls followed their timetable through live Teams lessons.

SPACE TO BE
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.
