Success at Ellesmere is founded upon high quality classroom education coupled with a strong commitment to extra-curricular activities, be they artistic, sporting or outdoor pursuits. We at this top boarding school  focus on each of the student individually and we take care of their personal and individual needs.

Ranked in the top 20 British schools offering the International Baccalaureate (IB), over 60% of all A-Level grades awarded were A*- B with the girls raising that bar to nearly 70% of their grades published being A*AB. Students who study the IB Diploma regularly attain the higher level at above 30 points, which is equivalent to three A grades at A-level. This top UK boarding school takes academic achievement very seriously, as well as the arts, music, drama and sport.  We try to work really hard in order to keep the balance at between each level of education we provide. We cherish students with lots of interests and enthusiasm.
