The ESMS Model

What is the ESMS Model? 

The ESMS model combines the academic benefits of single-sex education with the social advantages of co-educational, giving children the best of both worlds.

At ESMS children are taught together in the Junior School to help them develop positive relationships with the opposite sex. As they approach their teenage years, they are then separated to allow us to tailor our teaching to suit the different learning styles of girls and boys. Pupils are then brought back together again for their final year to prepare for life after school.  

Our wide programme of co-educational activities, including bands, orchestras, clubs, drama, House activities and outdoor learning residentials ensures that friendships between girls and boys remain strong throughout their time at School. 

The extended ESMS family is all encompassing and we are exceptionally proud to be part of it.
