While our pupils’ academic achievements are important, these must also sit alongside co-curricular activities that inspire and challenge them. We recognise that every student is an individual and pupils are encouraged to embrace a range of activities to suit their passions and interests, from musical and sporting to intellectual and cultural. Our global outlook encourages girls to play a part in the wider world, creating young women who value and serve the communities to which they belong.
