Manchester High School for Girls


Welcome To Manchester High
A Manchester High girl is recognisable by her confidence and passion, her intellect and ambition, her love of life, her caring spirit and enthusiasm.

Manchester High School for Girls has been educating girls since 1874 and has a long and distinguished history. Our girls are not only empowered to achieve their academic potential; they also leave us as ambitious, principled young women who are ready to take on the world.

So, who is a Manchester High School girl?

She’s the girl who aims high and loves learning for its own sake.  We build character; girls develop resilience, curiosity and confidence and the skills that enable them to be the very best they can be.

The wellbeing of each of our pupils is a priority and we encourage participation in activities and events that reflect a holistic approach to each pupil's development. 

Our pioneering alumnae epitomise our approach. From the Pankhurst sisters who fiercely campaigned for women’s voting rights, through to today’s leaders, such as Facebook EMEA Vice President, Nicola Mendelsohn and Dr Kotska Wallace, Principal Engineer at the European Space Agency, our alumnae inspire our current pupils to aim high.

We are proud to have educated so many women who have changed the world and we are equally excited about what our current pupils will go on to achieve.

We hope that you and your daughter will want to be part of this exciting future.

Mrs Helen F Jeys, Head Mistress
