Set in the heart of beautiful Shropshire countryside, Adcote School is an award-winning day and boarding school for girls aged 7-18 years. We have a long tradition of providing outstanding education to girls of all abilities, with a strong reputation for nurturing talent and expanding confidence in all the students under our care.
As an all-girls school, we specialise in developing the leaders of the future, using our substantial knowledge of the way girls learn to inspire and challenge them so they can reach their full potential and realise their ambitions.
Adcote School was founded in 1907 by the pioneering Amy Gough, whose vision was to provide excellent schooling for young women. Whilst our curriculum has changed, our values have not and it is still our absolute mission to provide a first class, progressive education for all the girls in our care.
We believe passionately in the advantages of educating girls in a single sex environment. Our outstanding staff are specialists in the way girls learn. We understand the challenges that modern women will face in their futures and our unique CLEAR learning programme equips them with all the skills they will need in order to thrive and be happy in the 21st Century.
Our small classes and warm, friendly environment mean that we know all our girls really well so that we can anticipate and address the individual challenges they will meet in their journey from being little girls to impressive young women. Such security means that girls flourish in our school.
Our philosophy is that happy children are happy learners. Again and again, parents tell us that their daughter’s confidence has soared thanks to our secure and nurturing environment, and we are proud of our reputation for achieving excellence through care.
