Edgbaston High School for Girls is an independent day school for girls aged 2 to 18 in Birmingham.
The school is Birmingham's oldest independent school for girls, founded in 1876, and its mission is to 'nurture confident, considerate and intellectually curious young women'.
Headmistress Clare Macro says: 'At Edgbaston 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 aspire and 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.'
