Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) is a remarkable school. It is a school where girls successfully combine impressive intellectual endeavour with enthusiastic engagement well beyond academia. The girls’ public exam results and their sporting achievements are among the best in the country. Their musical and dramatic activities place them among the best of young performers. And most importantly of all, their stimulating and happy approach to all they do makes LEH a joy for me to lead.
There is so much more to LEH life than academic achievement: if young women left here with excellent exam results alone, we would be disappointed. Our goal is that LEH girls become expert learners, unafraid to tackle new and challenging ideas, prepared to take risks, and able to learn from failure.
