Challenging girls to go further

We want all our girls to discover their true potential. Sometimes this is better done outside of the traditional curriculum. The Athena Programme helps students develop their academic skills through a range of additional stimulating and challenging opportunities. 

Athena activities are open to all students. However we particularly encourage those who have been identified as gifted or talented or who have been awarded scholarships to take full advantage.  

Gifted students are generally those with outstanding academic abilities in one or more curriculum area. Talented students are those with outstanding abilities in practical areas of the curriculum, including art and design, music, physical education or performing arts.

If your daughter joins the year-long programme she will enjoy visits from high profile speakers and published authors; one-to-one mentoring sessions; help with applying to Oxbridge and other top universities; and entry to high profile events such as the Model United Nations and Engineering Challenge Days. She will also take part in trips to specialist music concerts, theatrical productions, talks, workshops, museums or art galleries across the country.
