GSA Girls' Boarding and Day School, 11-18, Godalming, Surrey, UK.
About the school
Prior’s Field offers a distinctive route to high achievement. It’s a school where girls are encouraged to grasp the opportunities created for them – from designing and racing electric cars, performing in masterclasses with world acclaimed musicians and exhibiting their art in national galleries to setting up businesses in the sixth form. It’s where they can be happy and inspired by talented teachers and enjoy positive, engaging relationships.
Prior’s Field offers 26 subjects at A-Level. Girls go on to a wide range of universities, including Oxbridge, to study courses as diverse as medicine, philosophy, law and music.
Excellent facilities include an all-weather sports pitch, tennis academy, superb Creative Arts centre, separate Sixth Form House and newly opened Music, Science and Technology centre. Boarding is at the heart of the school: refurbishment of the Junior Boarding House includes ‘extra bouncy’ carpets in bedrooms and sparkly bathroom floors, at girls’ request.
Scholarships, exhibitions for promise and means-tested bursaries are offered; a forces discount of 20% applies.
