The founders of The Mount established this pioneering school to provide a “superior education for female leaders of the future.” 

Today academic excellence remains at the heart of our curriculum. Our bespoke and engaging curriculum is tailored to motivate and enthuse girls from the Early Years to Sixth Form.

The confidence and security girls gain within our all-girls setting means they are free to focus their energies on learning. Mount girls are proud to display their intelligence and explore their natural curiosity. They are not embarrassed to speak up or make mistakes. Girls become self-assured and self-motivated learners.

Girls are given a strong foundation of knowledge and a variety of learning skills, they learn to set individual goals and meet new challenges. From Pre-School to Sixth Form, girls are encouraged to question, analyse and solve problems.

 

We encourage a love of learning and an ability to think creatively and independently. A broad and imaginative curriculum places equal value on all subjects free from gender stereotypes surrounding subject choices. Small class sizes across the school, mean girls benefit from attentive tuition, teachers know the girls well understanding their strengths and when they may be struggling. Dedicated study areas for each stage of our pupils’ development, provide them with a space to learn and reflect at their own pace. In The Senior School this level of support leads to consistently strong GCSE and A level results.

No matter at what the stage a girl joins The Mount School, she will be empowered to believe in herself, challenged to try new things and discover a love of learning.

“Pupils of all ages, needs and abilities demonstrate excellent attitudes to learning. They are diligent and focused in their individual and collaborative studies.”

“Pupils exhibit a sense of empowerment and are very keen to learn, supported by encouragement to achieve their best at all times.”
