Staff deliver meticulous teaching to inspire ambition and secure girls’ exemplary results, whatever their future endeavours may be.


Characterised by strong achievements in the field of performing arts, AHS regularly organises competitions, productions and concerts. In this way, the school maximises girls’ artistic sensibility, exposing them to numerous opportunities for creative expression and self-discovery. [2]


Students also actively participate in Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) pursuits, which enable personal and social development through team-building activities and community service.
