For over 230 years, The Mount School York has been a community brought together by our shared values – knowing girls can.
One of the unique aspects of an all-girls education at The Mount is the sense of belonging that each girl experiences. Our girls are welcomed into a friendly, positive, and caring community. Past and present Mount girls often comment on the supportive atmosphere; ‘everyone looks out for each other,’ ‘My friends are wonderfully supportive.’ By being part of a community of like-minded individuals, our girls feel a sense of connection to the school community, they feel known and that they belong. Girls are empowered to pursue their ambitions and support others.
We are proud to be a small school community that allows us to place great emphasis on girls getting to know one another across the whole School. This allows girls to broaden their friendships and provides role models for the younger years. Together they participate in regular meetings and a range of activities and events including peer mentoring, house activities, sports, and fundraising initiatives.
