Redland High School: where girls come to learn for life
Newly appointed Headmistress, Miss Stephanie Ferro, believes that young people can flourish and prepare for a rapidly changing future when nurtured in an environment which is secure and suitably challenging. Promoting clear thinking, encouraging effort without fear of failure, and instilling a quiet confidence to pursue their interests, gives a sense of belonging and the courage to reach out to others.
"It was seeing for myself how these values are deeply rooted in the School's culture that convinced me to move to Redland High, and I hope that prospective pupils and their parents will feel the same when they come to see us. It is a place to make life-long friends, in a setting with a trusted reputation for providing a stimulating education which prepares them well for the future."
Stephanie Ferro, who has over 20 years' experience in some of the most prestigious girls' schools, arrives after Redland High has continued to achieve outstanding examination results. "Our young women have again won places at their chosen universities to study for a wide range of competitive degree courses." Miss Ferro brings her extensive experience of the UCAS application process to help support and guide students at Redland High to achieve their full potential, amidst fierce competition for good university places.
"We are a School on a hill that looks outward and aspires upward. Our Houses are named after trees that put out deep roots. Our School symbol of the daisy represents a flower that opens in the sunlight, just as a child who is nurtured blossoms and thrives. I am delighted to be building on the School's founding vision and proven track record, and look forward to leading Redland High into the next exciting stage of its development."
