Why Adcote?

Posted: 15th March 2021

I am so privileged to be Headmistress of such a wonderful school. It is a daily pleasure to be part of this vibrant community, shaping and witnessing the incredible development of our students, as they grow into confident and impressive young women.

Adcote School is physically beautiful, being housed in an inspiring Victorian building, and surrounded by breath-taking parkland. However, it is also a school which delivers outstanding education to girls of all abilities, a point made in our most recent inspection report.

As an all-girls school, we specialise in nurturing the leaders of the future, using our substantial knowledge of the ways girls learn to stretch and challenge them to ensure that not only do they fulfil their academic potential, but they also have the strength of character they will need to take them far in life.

Our pioneering and award-winning CLEAR Learning Programme provides robust whole-child education equipping our students with the necessary skills to thrive and be happy in their futures. At Adcote, we celebrate the individual. As a small and friendly school, we know our pupils very well indeed. Coupled with our small class sizes, and our outstanding teaching, which makes full use of our status as a Google School. This means that our students make excellent academic progress.

Our rigorous assessment and intervention programmes, ensure that all students reach their full potential more, making us one of the top Independent Schools in the UK for adding value to academic potential, translating student performance into top grades. Over 80% of our Sixth Form access their first-choice universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

We are enormously proud of our school, and the positive impact we have on the young lives within our care.
