Ours is a positive, friendly community that guides each girl to discover who she wants to be. It is a successful mix: dynamic and academic, but at the same time well balanced and enabling.
Our underlying aim is that girls are happy and achieving their very best. It is important to us that every day, each girl is able to do something that she loves, that she is good at and where she has the potential to excel. The school’s ethos is characterised as one of ‘rigour, underpinned by kindness’. People are at the heart of a Prior’s Field education.
We are not a school that is driven by impersonal systems or petty rules because we don’t need to be. Integrity, respect for others and generosity of spirit have real value in our community. Girls understand their rights and their responsibilities in equal measure. They understand what the school expects of them and have high expectations of themselves.
A vibrant tutor and house system is supported by specialist year teams. This ensures a strong emphasis on pastoral care throughout. Successes are celebrated immediately: problems nipped in the bud swiftly. Your daughter will always have someone to turn to.
The girls have a strong voice and we are committed to listening. Their concerns and interests are reflected in our green agenda, charity and service projects. They want to make a difference and their experience of leadership starts here.
