Single-sex-education for girls

The topic of co-educational versus single sex education continues to be heavily debated by psychologists, scientists, journalists and graduates sharing their own experiences. Based on our 90 years of experience specialising in the education of girls, we believe there are many advantages to choosing an all-girls’ school.

Equal opportunity and every opportunity

Each subject and activity offered at Stuartholme is available to every girl. There is no gender stereotyping, particularly with relation to subject selection and co-curricula offering. Every girl is able and encouraged to explore a career, or future in the area of her choice.

Permitted to question

Through personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom, Stuartholme aims to empower the girls to think for themselves. We value the importance of well-informed and discerned opinions and encourage the girls to investigate and question conventional trains of thought.  Risk taking and competitive traits are advantageous skills for leadership in many careers, and girls need to be in an uninhibited environment to allow these attributes to develop.

Confidence to lead

From the Cor Unum Committee, Blue and Green Ribbons, House Captains, Co-curricula Captains and Boarding House Captains, all leadership roles within our School are filled by the girls. Our hope is that younger students see these female leaders as role models, and quickly learn that girls can lead in any field.

Positive self-image

Stuartholme aims to produce graduates who are comfortable with themselves by providing an atmosphere in which girls are free to work through the challenges of adolescence without fear of embarrassment or harassment. Personal development programmes and Health and Physical Education classes include specific programmes designed to counteract negative body imagery and the stereotypical ideals of how girls and women are portrayed in the media.

Lifelong friendships

Whilst Stuartholme girls have many opportunities to mix with boys during interschool activities and social settings throughout the year, nothing compares to the bonds formed by establishing a strong network of lifelong female friends.

Global citizens

As an International Sacred Heart School, Stuartholme prepares our students to be citizens of the world by forming connections with girls in other countries through exchange programmes. There is also an emphasis on social justice and local community where girls are encouraged to make connections with others beyond the classroom.

Empowered to achieve

By the end of their final year, each girl has developed the assurance to learn and achieve in any field. They have developed the necessary skills to become confident, compassionate and capable women.
