We now educate 19,000 students and employ 3,500 staff. All but two of our schools educate girls all the way through, from the age of three or four to 18.
Our schools include Putney High, Oxford High, Wimbledon High, South Hampstead High, Shrewsbury High and Newcastle High as well as many others.
We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance learning in our schools – our team of experts at the GDST are leaders in their fields and work closely with both outside specialists and schools to shape the future of girls’ education.
As a charity, we are committed to our students, not to generating profits for any shareholders. We are determined to improve social mobility and help every girl, whatever her background, to fulfil her potential and to realise her dreams. We provide 1,100 bursaries and scholarships in our schools. We also work with 430 state schools and universities on projects which have helped to raise girls’ aspirations. We sponsor two non-fee paying academies, Birkenhead High School Academy and The Belvedere Academy.

Currently UK employers are struggling to fill 43 per cent of science; technology; engineering and maths-related vacancies (New Statesman). To close this digital skills gap in the future we need teachers with a good knowledge of digital technology who can equip students with the skills needed in today’s world. On this course you will build your knowledge of digital tools and your confidence in using them. You will investigate gaps in your own skill set and learn how to close them. You should leave the course newly empowered to use digital technology in your classroom.
