Values and Ethos


Micklefield offers a broad but individualised and independent junior school educational experience. Its small and caring family environment encourages girls to grow to their full potential and to become valuable members of society.


Micklefield is committed to:

  • instilling a love of learning
  • encouraging the development of academic excellence
  • developing creative thinking
  • developing effective communication skills
  • optimising pupil-teacher contact in small classes
  • enabling full participation in cultural and sporting activities
  • realising individual potential and building self-esteem
  • encouraging empathy and consideration for others
  • instilling a sense of personal responsibility and self-discipline
  • maintaining a happy environment with a dedicated and accessible staff and parent representation


Micklefield girls are:

  • Proud
  • Honest
  • Respectful
  • Considerate
  • Responsible
  • Friendly

This little school has been a pillar of our family life. It has been such a wholesome and safe environment for all of our children to grow up around. I think that what we have shared is a rare thing indeed.
