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. Girls take centre stage at The Mount, without competition they are free to pursue academic excellence.

Through our bespoke education and tailored teaching, we inspire each individual to strive for personal excellence

From Pre-School to Sixth Form, girls are encouraged to question, analyse and solve problems. Girls become confident learners and have confidence in themselves.

“Pupils of all ages, needs and abilities demonstrate excellent attitudes to learning. They are diligent and focused in their individual and collaborative studies.” ISI Inspection 2018

At The Mount School, 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, to inspire every girl. Girls are free to enjoy school free from gender stereotypes surrounding subject choices. It is no coincidence that Dame Jocelyn Bell-Burnell, one of the leading British astro-physicists, was a Mount School pupil.


Small class sizes across the school, mean girls benefit from attentive tuition 

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. To view more information on school specific curriculums please click on the links below.
