The Friends’ School is an independent, not-for-profit School that seeks every day to reflect its Purpose and Concerns statement.
The School thrives on an intrinsic spirit of warmth and friendliness, and its strong community atmosphere reflects the intentions of the founding Quakers whose original vision for the School in 1887 was education for spiritual and intellectual growth.
Students’ individual needs are the priority at Friends’ and we believe this focus is one of the main reasons that Friends’ students consistently achieve excellent academic results.
Each students’ individual interests are nurtured at Friends’, where the Quaker values it was founded on still apply today, particularly the recognition of ‘that of God’ in everyone, the desirability of simplicity, and the intention to establish peace and justice.
The Friends’ School has a commitment to service, to equity of relationships, and to fostering independent and creative thinking.
