More about EHS

Founded in 1876, Edgbaston High School for Girls is the oldest independent day school for girls in Birmingham. The School is very pleasantly situated next to the Botanical Gardens, 1½ miles from the city centre. There are over 940 girls aged 2½ to 18 divided into 3 departments working together on one site. Continuity of education is a feature of EHS, but girls can join at all stages.

The School attracts girls both from the immediate neighbourhood and all over the West Midlands. They come for the high academic standards, the lively programme of extra-curricular activities and for the individual attention and flexibility of approach.

The Council, which is the School's governing body, actively supports and encourages the work of the School. In the last six years over four million pounds have been spent on major development and refurbishment programmes. A major development to create a new Sixth Form Centre, Library, Reception area and Fitness Suite was completed in March 2011.

The Headmistress is a member of the Girls' Schools Association,the School of the Governing Bodies of the Girls' Schools Association and the Independent Schools Council.
