Why you should consider an all-girls school for your daughter

Choosing a school for your child will be one of the biggest life decisions you make for them.

If you have a daughter, it’s important to consider whether an all-girls education could be the right choice.

St Hilda’s School’s Head of Junior School, Amanda Shuttlewood, told myGC all-girls schools cater specifically to how girls learn.


“At St Hilda’s, we focus on girls’ needs, allowing them to flourish in all aspects of their schooling life,” she said.

“We develop girls’ academic abilities and social and emotional capabilities through our warm, caring, and engaging learning environments.”

The only all-girls school on the Gold Coast, Mrs Shuttlewood said St Hilda’s girls share a welcoming, sisterhood bond where they encourage one another to reach their highest potential.

“At St Hilda’s, every girl is nurtured to serve, shape, and change the world,” she said.

St Hilda’s welcomes Day Girls from Pre-Prep to Year 12, with Boarding available from Year 6. Prospective parents are encouraged to take a virtual tour of the school here.
