Welcome from our Headmistress

“We know choosing the right school for your daughter is a major decision. And, while our academic achievements continue to speak for themselves, visitors often mention Withington’s special community spirit: the happy sound of girls at ease with their peers – and themselves.”

Mrs Sarah Haslam

During my time here, I’ve been proud of a school that remains true to the vision of our founders. They wished not only to create educational opportunities for their daughters, but to provide an education that would be truly progressive. Our pupils aim high, discover their talents, and develop a strong sense of responsibility. We also value individuality, celebrate diversity, and encourage independent thinking.

Withington is a caring and creative place where learning is truly valued and celebrated; where girls are nurtured and empowered; and where we’re constantly evolving and curious.

Respect for self and others, and personal responsibility is golden.

Above all, we make a tangible difference to young lives. That’s why I’m as proud of our ambitious bursary programme as I am of Withington being named North West Independent Secondary School of the Decade in 2021 by The Sunday Times.

Girls’ schools remain as relevant and necessary as ever. So please visit our remarkable Withington community at one of our Open Days or arrange an individual tour by calling 0161 249 3371.

It will be our privilege to welcome you soon.
