Empowering Girls

We empower each girl with the courage to believe in herself. We know girls can, and girls do at The Mount. We teach girls that there is enormous power in being a woman. We strongly believe in helping girls to accept and be comfortable with who they are, free of ‘gender stereotypes’. Within our calm and caring environment girls are free to work through the challenges of childhood and adolescence without the fear of embarrassment. Girls learn from a young age that they are valued and by learning their worth they are empowered to get in touch with their own inherent values. Our girls are happy, they trust in their choices and grow in self-esteem. They focus their energies on their learning and enjoyment.

 

Bespoke Learning

We are passionate about girls and their education We are dedicated to championing the educational and developmental need of girls. Taught by experts in understanding girls’ needs, we inspire girls by teaching them in a manner that they instinctively respond to.  Our bespoke and engaging curriculum is tailored to motivate and enthuse girls from the Early Years to Sixth Form.

“Pupils exhibit increasingly strong study skills as they progress through the school. High expectations in teaching means that pupils strive for and achieve high standards in their learning.” ISI Inspection 2018

Girls are confident

Mount girls are exuberantly confident because they know they can be. They have the conviction to ask questions, take risks, make decisions and most importantly be themselves. All girls are taught to believe in the strength of their voice, to speak up and participate. We believe girls should be heard and their thoughts valued; we listen to their views and they know they can contribute positively and make a difference within the whole School. School Councils and Committees allow girls to form and voice their own opinions Mount girls know that nothing is impossible if they put their minds to it. They hold high aspirations because, in our all-girls environment, girls have the confidence to know they are valued for who they are.

“Pupils display excellent social skills and awareness of others. They support and encourage each other, creating particularly open and friendly relationships.” ISI Inspection 2018
