Our Founding Principles

At FGS we inspire girls to discover their talents and fulfil their potential through our founding principles of aspiration, empowerment and excellence. These principles are at the heart of life at FGS, ensuring that each individual is able to achieve her personal best.


Aspiration, the first of our founding principles is vital in instilling in each girl the desire to be successful in her chosen field and to have high ambition for the future. Our highly qualified and dedicated staff team deliver rich experiences and opportunities that enable each girl to find and develop her talents. We work hard to ensure that she is aware of the opportunities available to her and that she is fully supported to achieve her goals. Our curriculum together with our wide and varied enrichment programme introduces girls to many new activities and is underpinned by a commitment to the development of self-confidence, self-worth and a love of learning.


Empowerment, the second of our founding principles, ensures that each girl is equipped with the skills and abilities she needs in order to achieve success. At FGS we believe that the empowerment of a young woman is the key to her future happiness and success, as well as to the future of our community and our society.


Excellence, our third founding principle, permeates our actions and drives ambition; the unlimited ability to do ordinary things extraordinarily well. Flixton girls are proud of their school and benefit from our deep commitment to traditional standards, courtesy and respect, leading to outstanding achievements and academic success.

At FGS we believe that each girl deserves the very best education and has limitless potential. We consider it our duty to help her to discover and fulfil that potential. We are privileged to guide each girl as we share with you the most enjoyable, challenging and exciting journey of her life; from girl to woman.
