Head’s Welcome

Old Palace provides students with a unique and stimulating environment in which to learn.

We have high expectations for every student at Old Palace. Girls enjoy a first class, academic education and are able to experience a wealth of opportunities to enable them to develop as individuals through an outstanding extra-curricular and enrichment provision. We are very proud of the wide range of different clubs, activities, trips and events that the school provides across a whole range of areas including music, sport, dance, drama and so much more.

We identify, encourage and nurture the special qualities of each and every individual entrusted to us. Our superb pastoral care ensures that every student is well supported as they move through the school. Our vibrant and diverse school community stimulates girls to develop and flourish in ways beyond the reach of a conventional education.
