Description:
North London Collegiate School is an independent day school for girls founded in 1850 in Camden Town, and now in the London Borough of Harrow.

The Good Schools Guide called the school an "Academically stunning outer London school in a glorious setting which, in 2003, demonstrated its refusal to rest on its laurels by introducing the IB. Ideal for girls confident of their academic ability with an appetite for all the other opportunities too."

History

The North London Collegiate School now admits girls from the ages of 4 to 18 and was founded by pioneering girls' educator Frances Mary Buss in 1850. Frances Mary Buss is in the list of top ten greatest women of all time, according to The Times. It is generally recognised as the first independent girls' school in the United Kingdom, as it was the first to offer girls the same educational opportunities as boys, although the Red Maids' School was established in 1634. It is situated at the ends of Canons Drive in Edgware and has a rich history behind the location.

George Bernard Shaw's mother was a director of music at the school, followed in 1908 by J.B. Manson's wife, Lilian, whose ambitious revival of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas in 1910 gained coverage in The Times.Buckman, David (1973), James Bolivar Manson, p. 9, Maltzahn Gallery Ltd, London.
