The annual GCSE and A Level results and high table ranking reflect the hard work of the girls, excellent teaching and support from parents and families.
However, Adcote’s greatest achievement is the variety and breadth of opportunity that it provides for its pupils. Both day girls and boarders benefit from excellent tuition in a range of activities, including Tennis, Horse-riding, Yoga, Gymnastics, Swimming, as well as plenty of healthy competition with local schools in Netball, Hockey and other Sports.
Every Adcote girl, when she leaves the school should feel she has achieved all she can both academically and intellectually.
Adcote produces confident, enquirying and well-rounded girls with the skills to succeed in the 21st century.

Adcote School has a qualified SENCO who offers support lessons which are unique and bespoke. NESSY software is used to increase confidence, and ability for weak Mathematics and English pupils. There is a strong EAL department with 4 members of staff offering teaching and booster sessions, dependent on EAL needs. One:one available too.
There is a tiered system for teachers to inform SMT if they have any concerns about pupils’ learning needs/attitude to learning and then strategies to help and support can be put into place, and tests done, if necessary. There are also 2 staff meetings a week to encourage good communication amongst all staff.
Bursaries & Scholarships
Both Bursaries and Scholarships are available.
A number of Scholarships are awarded every year for Academic excellence, exceptional ability in Music or Art or for outstanding talent in some other field, such as Sport or Drama. The Scholarships can range in value from 5% to 100% of the fees, and can be held throughout a girl’s time at Adcote, subject to satisfactory performance.
