Mount girls leave The School ready to take on the world. Through our belief in women and our special ethos, they have an understanding of global issues, they develop an awareness of and a confidence, in their place in world.
Girls from The Mount have gone on to achieve great success in a diverse variety of fields; Doctors, Engineers, Authors, Astrophysicists, Actresses Teachers, to name but a few.
We highly value our connection with our former students and delight in welcoming them back to the School. Through MOSA our alumnae association we celebrate the achievements and experiences of our alumnae with students, staff and the local community.
