Girls from the age of four are welcomed into the Junior School, where we take great pride in nurturing their progress to Senior School at age 11, where, in turn, we develop their independence, both personal and intellectual, ahead of A Level studies in our Sixth Form from age 16.

Our girls delight in and long cherish their particular memories and friendships from their time with us, and all students are personally known and supported by our teachers and support staff.

The school’s favourable location in the heart of Cambridge, one of the most culturally exciting of all of Britain’s cities, provides a wonderful array of educational and leisure opportunities
