There are many advantages to girls being educated in girls' schools where there are no expectations to fulfil traditional gender stereotypes in the subjects they study, the activities they participate in or the careers they pursue.
In a learning environment dedicated to girls and without competition and social pressure from boys, girls are free to pursue academic excellence in any area they choose. Single-sex educated girls receive a less gender-stereotypes development than co-educated girls and engage in more healthy competition and risk-taking - skills that are advantageous for leadership and success.
Girls hold every leadership position in girls' schools - in the classroom, on the stage and on the sporting field. They are also more likely to study in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), to pursue careers in these non-traditional areas, and to participate and perform at higher levels in sport and physical education.
Below are a few reasons why we believe a girls' school allows our students to achieve greater academic success, and are more confident and assertive.
