Underpinned by their Quaker ethos, girls learn to respect and value every individual leading to an inclusive and compassionate community. Pupils have found many ways to fundraise for charities despite covid restrictions and the School’s diversity group celebrated Black History Month and Pride.

Through an understanding of topical issues, girls develop an awareness of the world. The Sixth Form Liberal Arts programme hosted discussions exploring the impacts of the Black Lives Matter protests and along with staff, College girls are helping younger girls understand the issues teenage girls face surrounding the ‘Everyone’s invited initiative.

The School has recently launched an Online Speakers series, hosted by College girls, inviting eminent women to speak to and inspire girls. External schools are also invited. In the first event, on International Women’s Day, Baroness Hale discussed her life and career.

The second event saw world leading Orangutang expert Dr Birute Galdikas, speak with schools in the UK and overseas. The impact on younger girls seeing their peers interact with globally significant women powerfully connects them to a mindset which knows, “we can do anything.” 

The Mount School has large ambitions for their girls. Girls leave The Mount intellectually curious, emotionally confident, and socially responsible, with a lifelong love of learning and ambitious aspirations!

“The Mount will without doubt encourage and push all your individuality and strengths whether it is traditional academic subjects or the creative. Regardless of what you want to achieve the all-girls Quaker ethos encourages you to go for it,” Alicia, Mount pupil.
