Why an all girls' education?

When girls become the focal point, there is greater opportunity for engagement and achievement.

There are numerous reasons for selecting a girls’ school for your daughter.

Girls in a girls' school:

  • Flourish in all the student leadership roles - they are fully involved in their community.

  • Are encouraged and supported to take risks in their learning. They are challenged to extend themselves and ‘have a go’.

  • Perform better in external examinations than any other group of students.

  • Are more confident about asking questions, particularly in Mathematics and Science.

  • Have higher occupational aspirations, which are fostered throughout their school career.

  • Have higher participation rates in activities such as Sport and PE.

  • Develop a greater sense of connectedness - girls in a girls’ school form close friendships often lasting for life.
