It was a pleasure to address such bright, gifted and engaged pupils."

The ability to think independently, to argue persuasively and to analyse critically is central to all that we offer. We want to equip students with an ‘intellectual agility’ to discuss, to challenge what they hear and read, to try out their own ideas and to pursue their academic curiosity.
Whether it is in opportunities to debate and discuss in lessons and reading groups, to engage with academically stimulating topics in our innovative politics, philosophy and economics lessons or by being exposed to inspirational speakers in our TEDx talks, we create a culture of intellectual enquiry.
At the core of this is student voice. We want girls to take ownership of their learning, to follow their own passions, stretched, challenged and supported by our staff.
