The Senior School girls are having picnics outside in the quad. Music is drifting up from Mr Rycraft’s Rock Jam classes. Shouts rise up from the hockey pitches where the PE teachers are putting the girls through their paces. In the Concourse, there’s a rehearsal for the musical with Ms Brehony. The Junior School girls are working away, noting the flora and fauna of Alex in the meadow and at the bug hotel. There is a happy buzz of laughter and chat. Welcome to Alex.
Choosing the right school for your daughter is not an insignificant decision. Our website aims to give you some feel for all that Alex is - but that is a near-impossible task! Our Admissions team is always happy to answer your questions or schedule a visit to Campus to see for yourself. The Principal of Alexandra College, Barbara Ennis; the Head of the Junior School, Avril Lamplugh; and our Admissions Officers Daniel Kruger and Carol Higgins are always pleased to talk to prospective parents and share more about the Alex community.
