A place where girls are empowered to be their authentic selves, we are extremely proud that our students consistently attain high standards academically in all disciplines. But it’s about more than just the lessons.

This year, girls headed off to some of the world’s top universities to study subjects including Astrophysics, Law, Medicine, Accounting, Animal Behaviour, Modern Languages, History and Performing Arts. More than a quarter of the year group were offered unconditional university places with 100% of students achieving the grades required to meet the offers from their first choice universities – many of them Russell Group or Top 10 universities.

Taking the next step…

World-renowned for its astrophysics department, Edinburgh ranks 4th in the UK in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for physical science and has strong links to major research facilities across the world, including CERN, TRIUMF, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and a number of principal astronomy facilities.

Maya headed to Newcastle University to read Modern Languages. Newcastle is part of the prestigious Russell Group and both rank in the UK’s top 5 universities for modern languages in the Guardian University Guide 2020. She earned unconditional offers to both her top-choice universities due to the strength of her application.

Loughborough has for the last 5 years ranked in the top 5 universities in the UK for Fashion, Textiles, Art and Design in the Guardian University Guide, the Sunday Times Good University Guide and the Complete University Guide.

We want our girls to have big dreams and the skills, resilience and tenacity to achieve them.
