It is our mission to enhance the lifelong learning capabilities of all students.

Our vision is to be a true School for Life.

Learning programs at Lauriston Girls' School are based around the School’s five core values:


Assuming that all schools value learning as a socially implicit value, the Lauriston difference lies in believing (and knowing) that the best learning occurs when the teacher-learner relationship is well established.
On a larger scale, learning how to establish a broad range of tolerant relationships, irrespective of status, race, and culture, is a fundamental life skill.


A quality essential to every aspect of the human condition. Courage to ask, courage to act independently, courage to think differently, courage to face physical and moral challenges, and the courage to make decisions.

Creative Reflection

This is a value which is the powerhouse for any kind of problem-solving. It is generally a whole brain activity accessing the conjunction of the rational and the aesthetic.

Intellectual Inquiry for Understanding

Intellectual inquiry for understanding learning is an implicit value in a school. Essentially every human being can and does learn, but may not necessarily understand. To be a lifelong learner one must value 'how' and 'why' not only 'what'.

Engagement In Life

Engaging within and beyond the School; engaging with local, national and international issues using an ethical and moral awareness.
