Why a GDST Senior or High School?

The senior school years, also known as Secondary School, from 11 to 16, are a hugely fulfilling time for girls. Academic excellence is a given at GDST all girls’ senior schools, but we also strongly champion personal development, wellbeing and confidence beyond the comfort zone.
