This academic year The Mount Junior School celebrates its 30th birthday. Originally named Tregelles, the school opened its doors in November 1991, since then it has been committed to providing an environment which fosters self-belief, and independence. 

30 Fabulous Years

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary pupils at the Mount Junior School are taking part in a series of activities across the academic year, celebrating the last 30 years and looking ahead to 30 years in the future. Activities include: Quaker Foundations, Time capsules then and now, 30 Talented Inventions, 30 Mount Talents and Future30 party.


To celebrate The Mount Junior School’s 30th Anniversary we have launched our #TALENT30 awards, offering 100% fee remission on fees in The Mount Junior School. Our Creative Curriculum encourages young girls’ inquisitive minds. The bespoke programme encourages creative thinking, exploring, discovering, and creating with your mind. Alongside a balanced combination of specialist teaching and creative thinking, girls are equipped with the 21st century skills.

Tell us your Talents
Girls starting Key Stage 2 are invited ‘Tell us your Talents’ to receive the #TALENT30 awards. What do you enjoy? What are your passions? What is your favourite lesson? What are your hobbies? We want to learn about you! The successful applicants will receive a 100% fee remission on fees for their time in the Key Stage 2*. (Bursaries can be applied for entry into Senior School/Key Stage 3)  

Applicants must submit an application form along with a ‘Tell us your Talents’ personal statement, demonstrating their talents, skills and creativity. Pupils can submit their personal statement in any creative way – a short video, a piece of creative writing, a drawing or even an interpretive dance!
