Founded in 1901, we are a girls’ grammar school with students aged from 11 to 18. We have six forms of entry and take girls from a wide area and over fifty primary schools, both state and private. Our 1380 students, including nearly 400 in the Sixth Form, and 140 staff, including over 90 teachers, are housed on a large, attractive site overlooking the town of High Wycombe.
We are proud of our tradition of providing a stimulating education within a friendly and supportive community. Our broad curriculum and excellent teaching encourage intellectual, creative, technological and physical growth. We aim to develop our students’ ability to think independently, solve problems, communicate and live happy and fulfilling lives.
For this to happen, learning must take place outside the classroom, as well as in lessons. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities, encouraging every girl to extend herself through the performing arts, sport, community service and much besides.
We always remember that the young women who leave our school will help to shape the twenty first century. They will need to be resilient, imaginative, courageous and confident.
