Dame Allan’s offers all its girls a genuinely caring environment where they will develop into the best that they can be.
In Dame Allan’s Girls’ School we fully understand girls and the pressures they face growing up in an exciting but complex global society. We pride ourselves on offering a fully supported journey through Senior School and take great delight in watching our girls grow into well rounded individuals who are genuinely caring of each other and the wider community.
Our academic standards speak for themselves with outstanding results year on year. These standards are achieved by dedicated and caring staff who support, nurture and celebrate the achievements of all pupils in teaching groups that are large enough for challenge and rigour and small enough to support each individual.
Such success can only be fully achieved by girls that are happy, confident and well supported and this is achieved by our first rate pastoral system. Here we provide a framework where pastoral teams in the lower and middle school can make time for and get to know each individual. From this position of knowledge and in partnership with parents, we can then help our girls to develop into resilient young people who are confident in their own achievements as well as understanding of the needs of others.
Throughout their time with us our girls have numerous opportunities to challenge themselves both within and outside of the classroom through a wide-ranging curriculum and a diverse offering of extra-curricular and house based activities and it is through such activities that the girls grow and learn to take care of themselves and each other.
Dame Allan’s Girls’ School is a family where girls can grow, flourish and succeed and in so doing make friendships that can last a lifetime.
