An all-girls' school creates an atmosphere of equal opportunity where students are free to pursue academic excellence in any area they choose.

Research shows that girls have access to all leadership opportunities, achieve greater academic success, and are more confident and assertive in single-sex environments. They are also more likely to study in the ‘gender atypical’ areas of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) at school and university, and are more likely to pursue a career in these non-traditional areas.

In a girls’ school, there are no expectations that they should fulfil traditional gender stereotypes in the subjects they study, the activities they participate in or the career they pursue.

What are the benefits of a girls’ school?

  • create a culture of strong academic achievement, particularly for girls
  • buck the trend in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths)
  • build self-esteem and enhance wellbeing
  • tailor teaching to girls and provide an aspirational environment

Empowered to defy gender stereotypes, girls in a single-sex educational environment are prepared as the leaders of tomorrow.
