The Mount School is a Quaker independent day and boarding school in York, England, for girls aged 11–18. It was founded in 1831. Its preparatory school is called Tregelles, accepts both boys and girls and has a nursery department. There are two or three forms in Year 7 to 11 and College (Sixth Form). There are about 15 to 20 girls in each form.
The school was founded by Yorkshire Quakers in 1831.
The current headmistress is Julie Lodrick. The school motto is Fidelis in Parvo, meaning "faithfulness in little things". The school day begins with a meeting for worship every morning, except Thursday is hymn practice. As part of meeting the school text is sung every Friday.
The Mount School has for many years been acknowledged as one of the top Independent girls' schools in the United Kingdom. In The Times League Table, the school is ranked 2nd by A-level results in the York area.
Academically the school maintains traditional values and has developed ‘pillars of excellence’ in several subject areas: science, music, sports, art, drama and foreign languages.
In 2006, a 100% pass rate in A Level was recorded across the academic subjects. Over 33% of the year group gained three or more A grades, and four students were credited with 5 grade As, with three girls securing their places at the University of Cambridge in the following academic year. As for GCSE level, 100% of pupils achieved a good GCSE grade in seven or more subjects. Five students gained one of the top five marks in the country in various subjects.
The sporting facilities are 16 acres (65,000 m2) of pitches, an indoor heated swimming pool, a sports hall, and a gymnasium. Girls may opt for activities such as orienteering and fencing.
