Edgbaston High School for Girlsupcoming open day (click for details)
Edgbaston High School is a purposeful and vibrant community of girls, teachers and support staff, providing a 21st century education based on traditional values.
Our aim is to provide the highest quality of education for girls at every stage of their development, from Nursery through to the Sixth Form. This is achieved through an energetic and encouraging approach to the full education and development of each individual and by wide commitment to the strong community at the School’s heart. It is supported by abundant and excellent resources which complement good teaching and a culture of learning in all areas of the School.
Pastoral care is an integral part of every aspect of school life, and works hand-in-hand with academic success. Much emphasis is placed on enthusiastic involvement in sport, music, House and other community activities.
Able, Gifted and Talented
The aim of Edgbaston High School is to encourage each pupil to achieve their maximum potential both in and out of the classroom. To this end, we monitor the academic progress of all our pupils and provide extension opportunities for all through the curriculum and extra curricular activities.
Each section of the school has an Able, Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator whose role is to oversee the programme of activities on offer and to monitor the progress of pupils.
Learning support is offered throughout the School with a specialist teacher in Westbourne 2 ½ -5 years, Prep 5-11 years and Senior School, 11-18 years.
Support is personalised depending on need and may involve 1:1 teaching, small group teaching on a regular basis or occasional 1:1 sessions. Support is offered through teaching groups where pupils are withdrawn for specific topics or a teacher may support within the classroom.
The assistance given is personalised and may require help with a specific learning difficulty, with organisational skills or with self esteem and motivation.
Extra time in examinations is given where appropriate and in internal examinations and class tests.
