Word From The Head

Clare Macro

Founded in 1876, Edgbaston High School is Birmingham's oldest independent school for girls.
Edgbaston High is an ambitious school with a focus on providing a broad, modern and inspiring education to ensure that EHS girls have the confidence, independence, motivation to succeed within and beyond the school. At EHS, we acknowledge that a good education incorporates achieving excellent academic qualifications and our dedicated and committed staff enable the girls to expand their academic horizons and realise their potential. However, children should never be defined by their examination results and an outstanding education goes far beyond this; it is about inspiring others to achieve in multiple areas, and to enjoy the process of this as much as the end result.

At Edgbaston we teach students to appreciate the impact that they have on others and particularly the responsibility that they have to give of their time, talents and charity to the wider community. We foster an environment where students can expand their minds, think flexibly, develop the skills of leadership that they all have within them, and grow as individuals. Children should be, and deserve to be empowered, inspired and challenged throughout their education so that they leave school fully equipped to succeed in whatever they decide to pursue.

As Headmistress, EHS pupils never fail to impress me with their achievements and the genuine desire they have to help others. Edgbaston High truly is a school that lives by its motto ‘Fideliter, Fortiter, Feliciter’ - Faithfully, Boldly, Successfully.

You are warmly invited to visit us so that you can see Edgbaston High for yourself and I very much look forward to welcoming you.

      Parent Survey- Pre Prep Parent

      We would highly recommend Westbourne to any of our friends and colleagues. Staff take an active interest in our daughter and really focus on her individual needs.  

      The Good Schools Guide

      ˜Edgbaston Prep will bring out the best in your daughter,’ pronounced a parent. The balance of ‘robust academia with strong pastoral provision’ is its USP and a reason many choose it over more pressured establishments. ‘They let children develop in their own time and space with a supportive push...

      Happy kids and parents here who all gave mention to the school being well run and the tight-knit community. Girls like the importance set on independent studying and that they are given roles throughout the school... Parents tell me they like that it’s nurturing and encouraging.
