When parents visit us here at Adcote, we are always struck by the fact that they are united by a single wish: they all want their daughters to be the very best they can be.

The outcomes they want to secure for their daughters are always the same.

Universally, parents tell us they want their daughters to be Confident. To have faith in themselves, to speak up, to challenge and defend.

They tell us they want their daughters to be able to Lead. To be able to take control of a situation as an excellent team player but also to be able to lead themselves when working independently.

In this multi-screened 21st Century, parents tell us they want their daughters to be Engaged with the real world, not the virtual world presented to them online. They want them to be engaged with society and its challenges both locally and globally.

Of course, they want them to be Achievers. To achieve the best possible examination results they can but also to achieve in other areas and feel the thrill of success in competitions and performance.

Lastly, and so closely linked to success, they want their daughters to be Resilient, to understand that failure is a necessary part of success and know the value of lessons learned from mistakes: “bounce, don’t break”.

Fortunately, Adcote’s unique CLEAR learning programme is structured to embed the key outcomes of Confidence, Leadership, Engagement, Achievement and Resilience in all our students.

We are really proud of our CLEAR learning programme and hope it will impress you too.
