A message from the Headmistress
Back in 1875, the founding headmistress of Bradford Girls' Grammar School, Miss Porter, wanted pupils to be independent, to be able to think for themselves and not to be crammed with a “mere smattering of knowledge”. It is this independence that the school still values so highly today.
We believe that our independence as an educational establishment means that we can pursue the type of education that we believe brings results: small classes, a girls only environment, development of the ‘whole child’ and above all, traditional academic teaching. The school today continues to deliver its heritage of excellent academic results, consistently well above the national average. Indeed Bradford Girls' Grammar School is currently top in Leeds and Bradford for A-level results.
Bradford Girls' Grammar School is an educational charity, and members of our Old Girls Union will be aware of its philanthropic history which has enabled a number of girls to attend the school during its 135 year history. We welcome the continued support of past pupils, parents and local business in our intention..... to provide a real choice in today’s educational environment. The school continues to promote intellectual curiosity in a broad range of subjects; we build confidence in our pupils and focus on the development of women leaders.
How you can help
Our aim through the Bradford Girls' Grammar School Development Trust is to widen access to the excellent education provided by our school through the provision of bursaries and scholarships. Our aim this year is to enable pupils to benefit from study in the Upper 3 and in our Sixth Form from where, access to the top UK and overseas universities can be facilitated.
Please contact us by telephone on 01274 545395 or by e-mail on email@example.com if you would like to discuss any contribution you are able to make in this area.
Over the coming months we will be providing more information on how current and past pupils, their parents, and local businesses can get involved.
