'Single Sex Schools Do Better Academically' according to DfE data analysis by SchoolDash

New research, released this morning from SchoolDash, has analysed the latest GCSE results in DfE data and shows that girls in girls’ schools perform better in exams than girls in co-ed schools. Caroline Jordan, President of the Girls’ Schools Association, has given an interview to the BBC’s Education Correspondent on the recent findings.

Headmistress of Surval Montreux, Penelope Penney, comments: 'I am delighted that Surval, as one of only two all-girls’ schools in Switzerland, can follow the National Coalition of Girls Schools, (US) and all other girls’ schools associations world-wide next week at the Global Forum on Girls’ Education. We celebrate the initiative and achievement of Whitty Ransome and Meg Moulton and their successors over the past 25 years. In the early years of the NCGS, I was privileged, as the then President of the Girls’ Schools Association (UK) to invite them both to speak at our Conference in London, under the title, Independent Girls, Independent Women. They spoke passionately about the values we all share, of the importance of single sex education for girls, choosing the title, Dynamite, not Dinosaurs, which has served them well over the years. Our Conference also welcomed speakers from the only girls’ school in Kiev at that time: equally enthusiastic about education for girls. We wish NCGS a wonderful event and continued success in the future'.

 The National Coalition of Girls' Schools has always known this and we will be following their forthcoming Global Conference on Raising Girls' Voices. To read the full article, please click here.
