Welcome from the Headmistress

A warm welcome from Headmistress Diane Browne

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

Adcote School is physically beautiful, being housed in an inspiring Victorian building and surrounded by breath-taking parkland, but 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 to inspire and challenge them. Our rigorous assessment and intervention programmes ensure that all students reach their full potential, 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. 

Our pioneering and national 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. Coupled with our small classes and our outstanding teaching which makes full use of our status as a Google School means that our students make excellent academic progress. 

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

Mrs Diane Browne
