It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Ladies’ College, one of the oldest girls’ schools in the British Isles.
The Ladies’ College aims to allow every girl to find her voice, to explore ideas, build connections and to have the space to discover who she is.
At the heart of the school is our staff, all of whom are not only passionate about their subjects, but also about the development and empowerment of each individual pupil. We aim to ensure that every girl is known, supported and challenged, so that, both academically and personally, she is digging deeper, being braver and exploring the world around her.
We recognise that kindness is the ground in which all other things grow - in which you can be brave, take risks and learn. We are therefore very proud of our pastoral system, and for being the first school in the Channel Islands to be recognised with the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Knowledge and care for our pupils are at the heart of everything we do and our approach empowers pupils to develop resilience and to tackle the things that can be hard.
At The Ladies’ College, the girls take the lead. Whether it is in our fantastic House system, which is run and led entirely by the pupils, in the strong student voice, or in the leadership of activities and the mentoring of others, our pupils are proactive, compassionate and willing to step forward and be at the front.
Their learning doesn’t stop in the classroom. Whether it’s the cutting edge work the girls are doing on the environment and ecology, the fantastic performance skills on stage or in the concert hall, or the huge range of sports and outdoor activities our girls take part in, there is quite literally something for everybody. Indeed, it is often outside of the curriculum that pupils learn some of life’s most important lessons in terms of teamwork, coping with uncertainty, leading others, and pushing themselves to go beyond what they thought they were capable of.
Finally, we are forward thinking. We want our young women to go out into the 21st Century with all the skills and confidence they are going to need. Technology is woven into what we do. We are accredited as a Microsoft Showcase School, which recognises our innovative use of technology, a student-centred approach, development of future ready skills and the expansion of Microsoft and Adobe training and qualifications. Our College is currently the only school in the Channel Islands to offer these industry standard qualifications, which also support academic learning. Whether it is in Design and Technology, science, arts, or analysis, we want our pupils to be flexible thinkers, to be brave enough to engage with the unknown and to be problem solvers in their own right.
There is no one ‘type’ of Ladies’ College girl. Instead, we believe that the school allows each individual pupil to find her path. We’d love to welcome you to the school at any time, so please do come and see what an incredibly special place The Ladies’ College is.
We would be delighted to show you around and for you to meet our girls. Please contact us at email@example.com or call 01481 721602.
