Social Responsibility, Resilience and Enterprise
The Francis Holland Schools Trust currently comprises three leading independent girls’ schools in two central London locations. While each school has its own vision and ethos, the Trust’s overarching commitment is to nurture pupils’ potential, develop resilience and help them become fulfilled adults who will make a positive difference in a fast-changing inter-connected world.
We encourage our pupils to foster high aspirations in all their activities and we help them to develop the confidence and ability to achieve their goals. We believe that the development of creative ability, a sense of social responsibility and a resilient and enterprising character will enhance academic potential and best equip our girls to make a major contribution in adult life.
The outstanding achievements of the schools within the Trust has ensured a unique position and reputation within the British independent school sector and the continued success of Francis Holland Schools is assured through our academic results, our strong growth and international expansion.
An Academic Heritage
An Academic Heritage
The first Francis Holland School was established in 1878 by the Canon Reverend Francis Holland, chaplain to Queen Victoria and King Edward VII. An innovator in his day, Francis Holland was committed to the advancement and provision of education for girls. This spirit of innovation and advancement lives on in the Trust today.
Now with 1,100 girls across its three schools and 130 teaching staff, the Trust provides financial stability through a shared Bursary and a Board of Governors known as The Council. There are currently 17 members who are all pre-eminent in their professional fields, providing well-informed advice via a structure of committees to all of our schools. There is a close working relationship between the Chair of Governors, the school Heads and the Chief Operating Officer to ensure a dynamic, smooth-running organisation. The Trust however, recognises the different character of each school and great value is placed on the autonomy each Head has over their school in terms of staffing, curriculum, uniform and culture.
Whilst the Trust has an Anglican foundation, all Francis Holland schools welcome girls from all faiths or none.
