    What it’s like

    Founded in 1876 it is the longest established girls’ independent school in Birmingham. It moved in 1962 to its present attractive 4-acre site (plus 8 acres of playing fields), next to the Botanical Gardens and 2 miles from the city centre. The senior school is combined with the pre-prep and prep departments and is very well equipped with an indoor swimming pool, up-to-date facilities for IT and a new multi-purpose hall. Academic standards are high and examination results are very good. Parents are supportive in time and energy and the staff place emphasis on the importance of good relationships with their pupils and do much to create a friendly atmosphere. Pastoral care is a strength of the school. There is a good variety of cultural activities. Music is strong and the performing arts are well represented. There is a wide range of sports (including life-saving and fencing) and standards are high in a number of sports – an impressive number of teams and individual representation at county, regional and national level. Notable success in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. The girls have opportunities for community service, work experience and a careers programme which aims to help each girl develop as an individual.
