SCHOOL AIMS

As a girls´ school with specialist Engineering College Status, the school challenges gender stereotypes, shares innovative practice locally and contributes nationally to the pool of able young women entering the professions of science and engineering.

We aim to create an environment where every student is challenged and can develop her full potential, prepared for adult life in the 21st Century. To this end, we have been reviewing all aspects of our life as a school over the last few years, including the way our curriculum is put together, the use we make of ICT, and the role we give our students as young leaders within the school. Our culture is innovative, technological and creative, but still committed to academic excellence. We are increasingly involving students in working alongside staff to innovate in order to continue to improve the quality and relevance of the experiences they have as they move up through the school.


We work actively with other schools locally and nationally through the SSAT in sharing good practice; we are particularly well-regarded for our development of Student Leadership, our tutorial system and our use of 24/7 access to learning technologies.
