We also have a number of articles on independent education for girls, and you may find this one particularly useful:

'Should you send your daughter to a girls' school? How single-sex schools are tackling gender imbalance', by Charlotte Avery, 2017 president of the Girls' Schools Association.

Elsewhere on this site you can find advice on the questions to ask when choosing a school and help with finding independent school fees.

These search results are from www.schoolsearch.co.uk, the online guide to independent schools in the UK, in partnership with John Catt's Which School? guidebook, first published in 1924, and John Catt's Preparatory Schools. We hope you find the perfect school for your child!
