Welcome to The Mount Senior School, a happy, busy and thriving community, where our philosophy is ‘We Know Girls Can’ and they do at The Mount!
The Mount Senior School, for girls age 11-18, is not just a top performing academic school but one in which the whole person matters and pupils are celebrated for being individuals. In the Senior School we are passionate about putting girls first, inspiring confident young women, enabling them to believe nothing is beyond their reach.
Built on strong foundations based on our Quaker ethos of simplicity, truth, equality, peace, social justice and sustainability, we offer outstanding pastoral care and a bespoke educational package for girls
Mount girls are compassionate, understanding and caring and our aim is to help them become incredibly self-aware as individuals, confident to stand up for what they believe, showing passion in argument without arrogance, whilst being tolerant and accepting of other view points and beliefs. Within a unique collaborative community, every student voice is heard.
The Mount is a small school where pupils regularly perform extremely well. We continue to build on our School’s excellent reputation ensuring each girl achieves their very best and ultimately goes on to the world’s best universities and preparing them for their individual pathways into the working adult world.
Our Year 13 students gain places at a range of prestigious and Russell Group Universities including Oxford, Edinburgh, Exeter, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, UCL and also Cornell in the USA. Degree courses being followed include Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering, Politics, History, Geography, English, Business Management and Modern Foreign Languages, to name but a few.
Our commitment to excellence also extends beyond the classroom. Extra-curricular activities are an important part of the school day, every day. We believe that academic enrichment, blended with co-curricular activities, creates a powerful holistic educational entity. Sport, music, drama, art, whatever their talent, girls excel and fulfil their ambitions. A wealth of opportunities provides the depth and breadth of education that our girls both demand and deserve.
I am delighted to be the new Principal of The Mount. I am honoured to lead this exceptional School and I look forward to developing our shared purpose and progressive spirit by continuing our mantra of ‘we know girls can’. What could be more vital and important in a world where the principles of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion, are at long last, assuming their rightful position.
