Our school is rightly known for its outstanding level of academic achievement and success. We have high expectations of behaviour, which underpins exceptional education and this is reinforced by the huge commitment from all stakeholders in our special community.

We are proud of our beautiful site, spacious enough to incorporate superb recreational and games facilities, with excellent transport links to areas we serve. Perhaps, most importantly, we encourage all students to explore and broaden their interests and provide a secure, friendly and happy environment in which they can develop. In this respect, as parents, we share a desire to see our children given the best opportunities to prepare them for their future. Dr Alan Davison

As the Head, I am also conscious of my responsibility to uphold key elements from our 400 year history, while offering a forward-looking education. This blend of traditional values and innovation is what gives our school its distinctive atmosphere and a vital foundation to our students. To this end, Dame Alice Owen's offers enthusiastic specialist teaching, caring pastoral support and a very wide range of extra-curricular activities.

Creating a successful partnership with parents is one of my goals and I hope our website gives you an insight into the exciting possibilities we offer your child. I hope you will visit the school and if you have any questions concerning the admissions process, please contact us via the button links or site map link above.
