Loughborough High School is an independent day school for girls aged 11-18. An official title which, although accurate, belies the busy, buzzy and joyous atmosphere which is the daily reality of a genuinely supportive school environment which has aspiration at its heart.

The School, founded in 1850, is believed to be one of the country’s oldest grammar schools for girls. Welcomed by the elegant architecture of our 19th century principal buildings, in the tree lined avenue of Burton Walks, you can see that we wear our pedigree with pride.

There is much too that points to the future and our commitment to help our pupils reach their full potential and become active and successful citizens of the 21st century.

The High School was a leader in the adoption of iPads to aid learning and shares its knowledge with other schools now following our lead.

A new, state-of-the-art sports centre is underway, supporting our existing grounds and sporting prowess and underpinning our belief in giving girls every opportunity for skills development and physical wellbeing.

STEM subjects are championed in refurbished and extended laboratories. It is a field in which our pupils have excelled, winning National Awards for their innovative ideas and inventions.

As a family member of the Loughborough Schools Foundation, we gain too from a cross pollination of ideas, social and educational interaction with boys and girls from the other leading schools on campus and from more outstanding resources. Our Music department has ‘All-Steinway School’ status and is a hymn to music in all its forms, offering our girls the very best tuition and a perfect environment in which to learn, practice and perform.

This dynamic mix of past and present; of tradition and future ambition; of academic and the extra-curricular; of pastoral care alongside aspiration and achievement, illustrates the ‘best of both worlds’ balance which is the hallmark of a Loughborough High School education.
