'The Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) is the leading group of independent girls’ schools in the UK. We educate more girls than any other organisation in the independent sector, and we do it brilliantly.
Our girls are not only academically successful (and our results are well above the average for independent schools) but a typical Trust girl is a resilient, confident and well-rounded young woman, recognisable by her friendliness, her confidence, her openness – and she will probably be great at music, drama and art as well as Mandarin, or chemistry, or history.
Our mission is to provide an outstanding education for girls and young women to become intellectually curious, think critically, communicate effectively and acquire the knowledge and skills needed to effect positive changes in a global, multicultural society. The hallmarks of a GDST school are consistently high academic standards, superb pastoral care, a warm and welcoming culture, and the self-evident success of the students. Ninety eight percent of our sixth formers go on to higher education, the majority of those to their first choice university.
As a charity, we reinvest all our income into our schools for the benefit of the pupils. Our ongoing charitable commitment to providing access to the very best education to as many individuals as possible is matched by our sound financial planning and an ongoing investment in our 26 schools.
Since we were established in 1872, over 250,000 students have ‘graduated’ through our schools. Our size, record of achievement and unique network set the GDST apart and ensure that we maintain a leading position in education on a national level. The Girls’ Day School Trust is on an exciting new path truly to become the leader in single sex education for girls.'
