Staff development is a high priority.

Visitors frequently tell us that their first impression of the school is of a friendly, lively and stimulating community where we emphasise the importance of the individual’s contribution and take pleasure in sharing and celebrating achievement.  They commend the good behaviour of the girls and their thirst for knowledge. Bishop’s is a community that offers mutual support and encouragement and expects everyone within it to respect others’ cultures, religion and beliefs.  We hope that the values, self-discipline and sense of personal worth that girls gain here will be a support throughout their lives as British and Global Citizens.
