Why All Girls?

‘At girls’ schools, girls do not just have opportunities, they have all the opportunities.’
At a girls’ school, teachers can specialise in teaching girls. Teachers appreciate that that girls and boys mature at different rates and that there are differences between the way girls and boys learn.
Girls have more opportunity to take the lead.
They gain the confidence to do this is because they are free from the social pressures and gender stereotypes which they might encounter in other environments. This is also true on the sports field and cultural environments. We try to provide an environment in which girls feel comfortable t o take a risk, lead with initiative and ask questions. As a result, girls become more resilient and courageous. In addition, a girls’ only environment provides opportunities for good fun without awkwardness!
