Without enforced gender boundaries, a single sex education provides a liberating and enabling environment, where girls can achieve their best.

Don't just take it from us! There is compelling evidence that a single sex education is the best option for girls. In an all girls' school, confidence grows immeasurably. Pupils become leaders, take intellectual risks, ask questions, develop resilience and learn to use their voice in a supportive, engaging environment, unconstrained by gender stereotyping.
