Talbot Heath is a leading independent school in Dorset that offers girls aged 3-18 an outstanding education within a strong and supportive community.

The School was founded in 1886 by Mary Broad, a pioneer of girls’ education who was determined to offer a first class liberal education to the daughters of the professional classes. The School’s motto ‘Honour Before Honours’ reflected the value she placed on integrity.

There is so much fondness and respect in the local community towards Talbot Heath, I am really proud to say I work here

Talbot Heath Staff Member

The school enjoys a beautiful woodland campus, close to Dorset’s stunning coastline. Talbot Heath is a selective school and its pupils attain excellent exam results at both GCSE and A level. Exam results count, but just as important are resilience, self-esteem, character, those life skills that are acquired as a result of a nurturing environment and an holistic approach to education.

At Talbot Heath the pupils flourish, not only academically but in every area, be it music, sport or the performing arts. Small classes, individual attention and the ability to tailor the provision to the needs of each student, ensure that pupils achieve their very best.
