The school motto is Sperate Parati – or ‘Go forward with preparation’ – which encapsulates our aim for every member of the school community.

We are proud of the strong academic traditions and the importance of service to others that have shaped the ethos of our school since its foundation by Elizabeth Fuller in 1704. We value hard work and nurture scholarship, always encouraging our girls to achieve excellence in all fields of study. The girls have the opportunity to excel at music, drama and sport, as well as to play an active role in the wider community by taking part in many charitable activities. Thus they learn to be their best selves: hard working, compassionate and high achieving in all areas of life.
