Quality teaching and an inspired curriculum have ensured our place as the highest attaining non-selective school in the South West and our long history of outstanding achievement. Since 1891 generations of students, staff and parents have been proud to be a part of this vibrant, caring and highly successful learning community.

Our students are taught to be independent, curious and resourceful in their learning, to seek knowledge and opportunities and to achieve more than they ever thought possible. They are supported in their learning through the very best personalised teaching while mutual respect and responsibility lie at the heart of the school.

We have created a challenging, engaging and values led curriculum which focuses on the characteristics and habits that last a lifetime – curiosity, creativity, confidence, ambition, resilience, optimism, responsibility and emotional intelligence.

The curriculum is enriched through Foreign Languages, Music, Sport and Drama and extended by way of numerous clubs and societies designed to stimulate and nourish intellectual curiosity.

Girls are encouraged to take on leadership roles, to actively seek to shape their own future and that of the school.

We are academically ambitious for each and every girl, but more importantly want them to grow as happy and fulfilled young women ready to lead and succeed in their chosen path, whatever that may be.
