Pipers Corner School
Pipers Corner is an independent day and boarding school for 480 girls aged 4 to 18 years.
At Pipers there is an atmosphere of caring and mutual respect with an emphasis on family values, good manners and courtesy. We believe that education is about the development of the whole person. In addition to providing a stimulating academic learning environment we also encourage the girls to cultivate any sporting or creative talents they have through a wide range of extra-curricular activities. The girls are challenged to achieve excellence, but not overwhelmed. Above all this is a school of individuals - there is no typical "Pipers" girl. We support the girls to fulfil their academic and personal potential, enabling them to emerge as mature, confident and independent young women
Our aim is to provide a secure and happy environment in which each individual is helped to fulfil her potential and to emerge with maturity, confidence and a sense of independence.
