Lauriston understands that its task as a leading girls' school is to create an environment that optimises each student's ability to learn. At Lauriston, we know that the best education is one that opens the doors to a lifelong journey of creative learning. It is a journey that takes courage, inspires resilience, and fosters personal excellence. The education of young people is about the recognition and realisation of potential and is a dynamic process, with enduring benefits. Life at school plays an essential role in fostering academic ability and achievement, ethical and spiritual awareness, and social potential – through such avenues as community service and competitive events. I encourage you to explore our website and to visit us to discover the truly special nature of Lauriston – a school that I can say with confidence is a School for Life, in all its facets.
