Leicester High School for Girls

At Leicester High School for Girls, an Independent School, we specialise in bringing out the very best in girls aged 3-18. We educate girls to their full potential whilst building their confidence through a wide range of opportunities, thus Giving Girls Education, Confidence and Opportunity.

​Leicester High School is one of the academically highest-achieving schools in the country, but this is only one aspect of what the School offers. Our pastoral care is also outstanding; we are committed to developing the whole person.

One of our special qualities is that we educate girls continuously from age 3 when they enter our Early Years, to Sixth Form when they leave as fully-rounded, confident young women who can take their place in the world of the 21st Century.

Our Christian ethos is at the heart of what makes this School so special, and we embrace pupils from all faiths and none. Girls are encouraged in the traditional values of honesty, responsibility and self-reliance to have strong moral values and codes of behaviour, coupled with an awareness of others. These traditional values are balanced with a progressive curriculum to fully prepare the girls for university and beyond.
