Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St Gabriel’s, a school which offers an innovative and inspiring education to children from the age of 6 months to 18 years.

Finding the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you as a parent will make; choosing an environment that will allow your child to develop physically, academically and creatively.  We are proud that a St Gabriel’s education allows our pupils, be they the children in the nursery and Junior School or the girls in the Senior School, to move on to the next stage of their education with a lifelong intellectual curiosity, the ability to question and challenge and a confidence and belief in their ability.  

In the pressurised world in which today’s children are growing up, our pastoral care is second to none in supporting the transition through the different stages of childhood and school.  While justifiably proud of our pupils’ academic results, we see education as being so much more than numbers and grades; we believe strongly in an all-round education and are eager for our students to enjoy their educational journey, rather than having their heads down as the world passes them by.

We are proud to be a small school as it allows the strength of personal relationships to form and develop.  It is our size that makes us what we are; a school for the individual, a school where your child will be noticed for all the right reasons, a school where we can enjoy community.  It is from this position that we work in partnership to ensure that your child becomes the success that they deserve to be.

You only get a glimpse of life at St Gabriel’s from these website pages, so if you would like to find out what makes a St Gabriel’s education so special, please do come and see the school for yourself either by arranging a personal visit or join us at one of our Open Mornings

Ricki Smith, Principal

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
