About the GDST

The Girls’ Day School Trust is the UK’s leading network of independent girls’ schools, with 23 schools and two academies throughout England and Wales. Founded in 1872, we now educate 19,000 students and employ 3,500 staff.

All but two of our schools educate girls all the way through, from the age of three or four to 18. As a charity, we are committed to our students and not to generating profits for any shareholders.
