Principal’s Welcome

Leading this energetic, talented and diverse community of staff and pupils is an extraordinary privilege.

The next generation is growing up in a world full of promise, choice and possibility. They are going on to pursue as yet unimagined careers and will face unprecedented opportunities and challenges.

On a daily basis, I have the pleasure of seeing the girls at College develop and mature into the young women who will lead the many cultural, artistic, scientific and technological advancements that lie ahead.

In preparing our girls to navigate and shape this complex and changing world, we recognise not only the importance of delivering academic excellence, but also of supporting and challenging the girls’ opinions, promoting independence and global diversity within our community, and nurturing a culture of tolerance, compassion and resilience.

These qualities are key to empowering our girls to thrive, both as they live and work alongside their friends and peers at College, and as they go on to lead successful and fulfilling lives beyond.

We unashamedly put the wellbeing of our girls on an equal footing with their academic achievements and we are proud to develop intellectually curious, self-motivated and enthusiastic young women.

College has an inspirational tradition of pioneering girls’ education, which we cherish, and we look forward to an innovative and exciting future. We would love to tell you more about it.
