What the school says...

Our Junior School is a special place, a place where imagination comes alive, talents are nurtured, friendships are fostered and girls develop a confidence and independence that is recognised by all who meet them.

Academic excellence will always be at the heart of what we stand for but we know that you also want your daughter to feel happy, and enjoy an education which will inspire and excite her, draw out her unique abilities and open her eyes to an exciting world of wonder and discovery.
