Meet the Head & Pupils


Leanne Kirby, Head of Junior Girls, tells us what inspired her to teach and shares her vision:

"I came into teaching to make a difference, to inspire and to thought provoke. I am passionate about bringing learning to life, developing skills and fostering happiness and resilience in young people."

Leanne Barlow


Happiness, confidence, enjoyment and passion are the key ingredients for a great education; with this our children progress in learning and in character.

What makes Junior Girls different from other schools?

We ensure that every girl feels valued, challenged and supported. Future skills are built into our curriculum, enabling pupils to explore different ways of learning and preparing them for the unknown.  The way we teach is tailored to girls, making learning exciting, stimulating and interesting.

Leanne Barlow with Pupils

What is your approach to education?

I always put myself in the learner's shoes; looking at what they need, what they are interested in and where they need challenging.
