In the Junior School, the girls enjoy a rich curriculum, engaging enthusiastically in activities and achieving excellent results for music, speech and drama.

Our students follow in the footsteps of others who year on year achieve places at Oxbridge, Russell Group and other world-ranked UK and overseas institutions.
