A warm welcome

Welcome to Edgbaston High School. We are a purposeful and vibrant community of girls, teachers and support staff, providing a 21st century education based on traditional values.

Our aim is to provide the highest quality of education for girls at every stage of their development.

This is achieved through an energetic and encouraging approach to the full education and development of each individual and by wide commitment to the strong community at the School's heart. It is supported by abundant and excellent resources which complement good teaching and a culture of learning in all areas of the School.

Schools are places of growth. We strive to provide every opportunity for this from Westbourne to the Sixth Form.

We want girls to be so stimulated and challenged during their time here that they not only meet but exceed expectations. Those expectations combine the many successes of academic and extra-curricular life with high personal standards of integrity, care and commitment.

We are proud of our girls; they work hard and give a great deal back to the school and society in general; they value their education and their school and leave us confident in their abilities and with a good sense of who they are.

We warmly invite you to visit us and see the School for yourself.

I look forward to meeting you.
