About Girls’ Day School Trust

The Girls’ Day School Trust is the UK’s leading family of independent girls’ schools. In all of their schools, academic excellence is a given – at the GDST they develop character beyond the curriculum. 

The GDST is a charitable trust which owns and operates 25 schools across England and Wales. Their schools are mainly girls only, with the GDST ethos to ‘reach as many girls as possible’ permeating everything we do. Most schools are Junior, Senior and sixth form, with some having nurseries as well; one of the school’s remains a boarding school. 

The Council of Trustees oversee the strategic direction of the Trust, with an Executive Board who run the day to day operations, based at the Trust Office in Victoria, London. The Heads of the schools report into the Chief Executive, and all have Directors of Finance and Operation (DFO’s) who help to run the 23 schools and 2 academies.
