About Presdales School

Our school is a five-form entry all-ability school for girls aged from 11 to 18. Founded as Ware Grammar School for Girls in 1906 on the Amwell House site, we moved to our present site at Presdales in 1964. Our Language College status, which was granted by the Secretary of State for Education and Skills in 1995, enables us to offer a much wider range of languages whilst still ensuring that a broad and balanced curriculum is maintained.


To promote:

  • individual fulfilment of potential and achievement of excellence
  • the belief that education rightly challenges people to exceed expectations
  • the expansion of interests through richness of opportunity
  • the development of a sense of initiative and leadership skills
  • good relations with the wider community and especially with parents whose support is invaluable to the educational process
  • a love of learning throughout life
  • the understanding of "What it is to be me" and, by extension, "What it is to be another"
  • sensitivity to the needs of others and the willingness to work as part of a team
  • the development of a social conscience through the experience of belonging to a community
  • the development of a sense of public service
  • respect for the environment
  • acknowledgement of the importance of morality and the value of everyone
  • curiosity about the spiritual dimension and eagerness to explore this
  • the development of wisdom and the importance of vision
