School aims

At KEHS, we aim to offer girls an education which will prepare them for their future: in further education, employment and in their personal lives. We want girls to embrace a love of learning, to develop new skills and make friends for life in a safe and supportive environment. We want to inspire them to aim high, believe in themselves and pursue their dreams.

Hand in hand with our academic curriculum, goes a vast array of extra-curricular activities to suit every taste, offering time to relax, unwind, learn new skills and meet a range of people.

Aware that learning does not stop at the school gate, we offer opportunities for independent study and a wide range of exciting, educational visits in the UK and beyond, to put learning into context and broaden horizons.

Our core aims are summarised in the following statements:

  • to offer girls a distinctive, academic education in a friendly, nurturing environment
  • to help girls to achieve academic success, inspiring a love of learning for its own sake
  • to give girls the confidence to aim high and pursue their ambitions
  • to encourage girls to achieve a productive and healthy work / life balance
  • to develop independent, resilient young women
  • to encourage girls to broaden their horizons and to think nationally and globally, celebrating diversity
  • to be accessible to able girls from all backgrounds
  • to encourage respect for others and a sense of collective responsibility
  • to provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities

Following the snow this weekend, the site has been cleared and will be gritted in the morning, but please wear sensible footwear and take care when walking around the site.
