The founders of The Mount established this pioneering girls' school to provide a "superior education for leaders of the future". Committed staff continue to inspire each individual to strive for personal excellence.
A broad and imaginative curriculum places equal value on all subjects, to inspire every pupil. It is no coincidence that Dame Jocelyn Bell-Burnell, one of the leading British astro-physicists, was a Mount girl.
Small class sizes mean your daughter will benefit from attentive tuition that caters to her personal needs. Dedicated study areas for each stage of her development will give her space to learn and reflect at her own pace. This level of support leads to consistently strong GCSE and A level results. College, The Mount Sixth Form, is the natural choice for post 16 education.
We benefit from being part of the City of York's academic community, with its world renowned universities and rich cultural life. Our students have the opportunity to extend their understanding of academic issues across a range of disciplines.
My Physics teacher understood that women view the conventional from a different angle and can give a different perspective on what Science is.
