Transition Day

We are looking forward to welcoming you to The Ladies’ College in September.  As some of our normal transition activities may not be possible, we hope that this page will help you to become more familiar with the College, to get to know some key staff as well as get a feel for life at The Ladies’ College.

We understand that starting secondary school can be a very exciting yet, daunting experience.  We are all keen to make transition as smooth as possible for both students and parents so that you are happy, confident and look forward to returning after the summer break. The College website has a wealth of important and useful information, so please take the opportunity to look around. This page will be updated regularly with new documents and links - please visit it regularly.  Whenever there have been any significant updates, we will contact you directly.  Please do contact us via email if you need any specific information that you are struggling to find, or if you need to ask any questions. We will be in touch again soon with details of your daughter's form group and house.

Date for your diary: Wednesday 24th June 19.00 - 20.00 Parent Information Evening. The information evening is an opportunity to hear from the Principal, Deputy Principal (Pastoral) and Remove Coordinator as well as ask any questions you may have. It is likely that this meeting will take place virtually. We will update you closer to the time.

I look forward to meeting you all soon!

Pastoral Care

The aim of the College is to ENCOURAGECREATE and INSPIRE our girls to be the best that they can be. To respond positively to setbacks and understand that her best is good enough. We work proactively to anticipate the challenges faced by our girls in today’s world and respond to them through educating before crisis point is reached. As a pastoral team, we use a tracking system to pick up on trends and take time to reflect on how we managed situations to ensure we are constantly evolving.

Co-curricular Activities

The transition from young girl to young woman needs more than a classroom. It needs the kind of opportunities that come from building friendships, pushing boundaries, facing challenges and reaching goals. These are the things we offer with our co-curricular activities.

From the traditional drama, sport and music to the more daring days coasteering, kayaking, building rockets or facing the competition in head-on, high stakes debate and everything in between, The Ladies' College will give your daughter room to become the woman she wants to be.

Our most popular activities consist of - Senior School: De Putron Challenge, Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, CCF (Combined Cadet Force) - Sixth Form: Certificate of Enrichment, Collas Crill Moot, IoD Management Shadowing, Work Experience and Young Enterprise. This is by no means the complete list of what is on offer.
