Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School
When pupils join Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School in Year 7, they are encouraged to explore fresh interests, take part in new activities, broaden their horizons and make new friends. Girls are supported to understand the ways in which they can grow as young women of the future by giving them opportunities and challenges and the tools to thrive.
Merchants’ girls excel at a variety of pursuits outside the classroom, from maths to music, netball to Nitzche. We set no limit on what they can achieve. The Combined Cadet Force, shared with the Senior Boys’ School, is the largest voluntary contingent in the North and girls currently account for more than 50% of cadets.
A dedicated and talented team of teachers and support staff build close bonds with girls which often last well beyond the time they leave school. Staff love nothing more than to see girls return to school as confident, successful young women, willing to give their time and advice to current pupils, support their education through bursary funding, or simply reconnect with old friends and mentors through the highly active alumni network.
The young women who leave Merchant Taylors’ are well-equipped to pursue a variety of successful careers and become the articulate, compassionate and intelligent leaders of tomorrow.

Merchant Taylors’ Girls School also includes Stanfield Merchant Taylors’ which is located less than a mile down the road, and enjoys close links with Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ Schools which is also very close by.
The school is well resourced and has excellent facilities for Sport, Art and Drama.

The main campus has a gymnasium, tennis courts, a sports hall, a fitness suite, a drama workshop, two art studios (complete with a 19th century Parisian printing press) and a new Sixth Form Centre. Facilities are available for lacrosse, badminton and basketball.
The school recently had “The Vitreum” built; a new gallery space which hosts our own exhibitions of GCSE and A Level projects along with artwork from visiting artists. There is strong music department which runs a school orchestra, a variety of ensembles and choirs and provides the pupils with the opportunity to attend regular music tours abroad.
Extra-curricular activities include the Combined Cadet Force (with Army, RAF and Navy divisions), the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, rowing and sailing club, joint musical and dramatic productions with the Boys’ School and a fantastic variety of sport.
