School Life

At Adcote we are very fortunate to have the Prep, Senior and Sixth Form schools together on our beautiful site. Each part of the school has its own distinct atmosphere, where the girls have everything they need to flourish.

We offer an excellent well-rounded education that serves as a foundation for future achievement.  Adcote girls gain experience in a wide range of subjects and the curriculum is supplemented by a lively extra-curricular programme.  Our after-school activities are available each day until 5:25pm.

Although we cater for the social, spiritual, sporting and emotional needs of our pupils, academic work is central to life at Adcote. All of our pupils go on to University or some other form of Higher Education, and our A-level results are among some of the best in the country.

Needless to say, throughout the curriculum, we wish to promote confidence, excellence and achievement. Pupils with specific learning needs are offered a tailor-made timetable to focus on the academic essentials. At Adcote, our committed staff stretch our most able girls and nurture those who need additional support, so that all our pupils can achieve the very best they can. As a non-denominational school we provide for all cultural needs with a room available for prayer and a weekly service of worship, led by our Chaplain, Rev. Lucinda Burns.

Using Google Workspace for Education, we have the resources to improve two important areas of education; effectiveness and efficiency. The platform ensures that our education is effective, as we are able to use the amazing information and resources available to use on the internet. Students and staff are able to share, collaborate and discover together. Students can no longer forget their homework, it’s on Google Classroom. Can’t remember what the teacher said in the lesson? Look at the slides again or, if recorded, watch the lesson again. Teaching staff are able to mark work in real time, and students receive their feedback whilst the lesson is still fresh in their minds. Even our back- office processes have been streamlined with shared documents, forms and common drives that can be accessed from anywhere. This technology does not, however, replace the written word, as exams are still handwritten.
