Folkestone School for Girls

Coolinge Lane Folkestone Kent CT20 3RB

“Our prime purpose is to provide the highest quality of education, care and preparation for life in a stimulating and exciting environment. This is a happy, well-disciplined community with a strong academic tradition, which also provides a wealth of experiences through extra-curricular activities. We want our girls to enjoy their time here and become fully involved in the life of the School. We expect our pupils to be industrious and behave in a way that makes a positive contribution to the whole school community. We will have achieved our aims if girls leave the School confident that they possess the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to enable them to take their place in society.”
