The GDST is a unique family of 25 all girls’ schools across England and Wales.


As specialists in girls’ education, we tailor our teaching to the way girls learn best.

The GDST is a family of 25 girls’ schools, including 23 independent schools and two academies, across England and Wales. As all girls’ schools, we deliver innovative learning for girls aged three to eighteen. From nursery, primary and prep school, throughout secondary school and Sixth Form, they learn in an environment where every girl thrives.

We are proud that our schools are recognised for their excellence in teaching and pastoral care. In The Sunday Times’ 2023 Parent Power league table, Sheffield High School were crowned Independent Secondary School of The Year in the North and Norwich High School were crowned East Anglian Independent Secondary School of The Year. At the 2021 TES Independent School awards, several GDST schools won top prizes, including Notting Hill & Ealing High School for ‘Senior School of the Year’.
