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 independent schools and 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. At the 2021 TES Independent School awards – a ceremony recognising the best independent schools across the UK – several GDST schools won top prizes. Notting Hill & Ealing High School won ‘Senior School of the Year’, Norwich High School for Girls won ‘Wellbeing Initiative of the Year’ and Streatham & Clapham High School won ‘Student Initiative of the Year’.
