With over one thousand students, the Academy focuses on providing the highest quality education for girls aged 11-19. More than this, the Academy is focused on developing articulate, confident, independent and successful girls who are responsible citizens of the community and possess the full range of qualities, skills and experience needed for a successful future. Alongside a focus on academic studies, the Academy offers a broad range of enrichment opportunities, with an emphasis on Modern Foreign Languages.
