Independence

Like other independent schools, GSA schools are relatively free from government control

 

Our independence means we are free to: focus on your child and provide her with an education best suited to her needs; provide a diverse range of schools for you to choose from; avoid political interference, instead being directly accountable to you, the parent; allocate resources as we see fit to meet the needs of our pupils most effectively; and be innovative in our choice of curriculum, exams and the very best teachers.

When you choose to send your child to a GSA school, you are choosing to embrace a unique identity and independence which, in turn, inspires and encourages independence of spirit and thought in its pupils as part of a fully rounded education.

Many former GSA students have gone on to become successful women leaders in their chosen field:
