The GDST is a family of 23 independent schools and two academies located across England and Wales. Our schools represent the very best in teaching and pastoral care. We foster academic excellence but also build character, helping girls to be confident, resilient and fearless. Whatever her disposition and direction in life, we strive to create environments where each girl can learn without limits and thrive in her own way.
The Trust was founded in 1872 and throughout our history we have been at the forefront of education for girls and a strong voice in promoting opportunities for young women.
Today, the GDST is a vibrant, successful organisation and our schools are some of the very best in the country. Each one has its own distinct identity, but they all share a common purpose: to help every girl fulfil her potential and make her dreams a reality, for the benefit of everyone. Each school is characterised by a broad curriculum, academic excellence and rich programme of co-curricular activities.
