Head's Up

“We aim to provide a first class liberal education for girls. The School’s motto is ‘Honour Before Honours’ and this underpins the community. We care for each other and support one another. Integrity and character lie at the heart of who we are.”

Angharad Holloway

Inside Scoop from a current parent

Without doubt, the staff at Talbot Heath offer excellent tuition. In addition to this, the school has truly amazing facilities to allow for a very diverse range of interests – the danger is that this could result in very spoilt girls! Instead, there is a deep sense of each girl needing to take personal responsibility and make the most of what is on offer to them.

What we were told when first shown round has been borne out to be totally true in practice: the staff facilitate the girls’ learning journey every step of the way. Of the many events that the school put on, The Linguists Dinner is truly a fabulous advert for this.
