We are proud that we were one of the first schools in the North East to take girls’ education seriously. We have been a school for girls since 1884 and we need young women like you, who are going to make things happen, to continue that tradition today.
While there are standard entry points to the school, we remain open to entrants at any stage from 3-18.
