About Us

Dating all the way back to 1658, The Maynard is one of the oldest and greatest all girls’ schools in the country. Yet its unpretentious, nurturing, fun and challenging approach to learning sets it far apart from other independent schools.

Plenty of research shows girls learn differently to boys. Girls feel at home, get better grades and are more likely to thrive in later life when they learn in supportive, encouraging and calm environments. We are proud to be able to tailor our curriculum specifically for girls, based on hundreds of years of experience, and to offer such a vast array of opportunities away from the classroom. As the Good Schools Guide notes; girls are engaged with their learning, full of infectious enthusiasm for life, keen to reach their potential in everything they do, but are not highly strung, pushed or that much dreaded, much-used accusation “hothoused” in any way.

Quintessentially, we are #MadeForGirls!
