School Video



 
Head PhotoMayfield is a school where girls should expect the unexpected: taking on the boys in the modern pentathlon one week; heading off with the choir to meet the Red Hot Chilli Peppers the next; being taught prop design by one of Ridley Scott's collaborators after school; and spending the weekend winning a National Schools Equestrian Championship title. The opportunities available for pupils to pursue their individual interests are seemingly endless.

Underlying these opportunities is an academic rigour which provides the girls with outstanding preparation for the future. Mayfield girls learn how to combine rigorous academic study with a diverse range of activities beyond the classroom. When they come to leave at the end of the Sixth Form, they will have matured into educated and independent young women, confident in their beliefs and prepared to make a positive difference in the world in which they find themselves, a force for good in responding to the challenges of the 21st century.

'One of the best schools in the land'. - Country Life

'Some schools are particularly brilliant at unusual things, and ceramics is Mayfield's forte. Riding too is exceptional. And on the academic front? Well, the stats speak for themselves.' Tatler,

'The school is an exemplary model of the dynamic effects which can be achieved by an education based on faith and love' - ISI Inspection Report,
