Withington Girls' School
Withington Girls' School is an independent day school for girls aged 7 to 18 in Manchester.
Headmistress Sarah Haslam says: 'Visitors often comment on the special atmosphere they find here at Withington. We are extremely proud of our consistently outstanding record in public examinations and places gained at the most selective universities but also of the happily informal atmosphere, thriving co-curricular programme, community spirit, alumnae network – and engagement with education in its broadest sense which characterise this unique environment.'
'True to the vision of our Founders, our girls aim high, have boundless opportunities to discover their talents and develop a strong sense of responsibility. We value individuality, celebrate diversity, encourage our girls to think for themselves and to understand the importance of tolerance and teamwork. It is our aim that our girls leave school at ease with themselves, socially aware and ready to face with confidence the challenges of life beyond.'
