School Aims - Our mission is to nurture confident, considerate and intellectually curious young women.

Broadly, we aim to inspire a life-long passion for learning, to deliver education of the highest standard, to foster interests which will enrich each girl, to provide a caring pastoral system and to foster a strong sense of community.
The School attracts girls both from the immediate neighbourhood and all over the West Midlands. They come for the high academic standards, the lively programme of extra-curricular activities and for the individual attention and flexibility of approach.
