This pioneering girls' school was established in 1785 to provide 'a superior education for leaders of the future.' We may say it differently these days, but our aims remain the same: to provide a first-class education by developing the girls' individual strengths and celebrating their achievements. Each pupil is valued for who she is. This is especially so in the boarding community.
