We are extremely proud of our school and all its community, and it gives me immense pleasure to give you a brief insight into what makes it so special.
Established in 1875, the school is rich in history and has a strong record of providing opportunities for girls to succeed at the highest levels. Our school motto: Aspire, Succeed, Lead, captures our aspiration that every student should be ambitious, work hard and achieve success both academically and personally. Our girls leave school well equipped for national and international leadership opportunities and we have a strong network of Old Girls who have succeeded in many different fields and who provide inspiration for all our current students.
As one of a small number of through-schools, we offer high quality education for girls of 4-16 and we also welcome boys in Lady Royd Primary. This makes our school unique and we have a national reputation for excellence. Our students have the chance to lead others and develop the skills and attributes, confidence and ambition to enable them to flourish as individuals in preparation for future careers or further study. Knowing our students so well means that our curriculum can be planned so they are all stretched and supported – and consequently our results are amongst the best in the country.
Importantly, our school has firmly rooted values that underpin our ethos and shine through all that we do. We are dedicated to helping children to be Accountable for their success through fostering their Self-Confidence, and encouraging Perseverance in their learning. We expect our whole community to act with Integrity, show mutual Respect at all times and to have Empathy, understanding and compassion for others. Through these values, we believe our students will ASPIRE to the highest positions, become responsible citizens, and succeed in pursuing their dreams and ambitions.
We hope that this website will give you a flavour of our school and provide any specific information you need. However, nothing replicates a visit to the school, where you will see happy children, inspirational teaching, and our wonderful supportive environment. Please do get in contact if you would like to make arrangements to do so.
