Black Lives Matter

9 Jun 2020

Dear Alumnae,

Over the past week, we have all been moved by the shocking death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests across the world. At JAGS we are committed to inclusivity and diversity across our community, but we acknowledge that there is still much we can do.

During the past few years we have reviewed our History curriculum to ensure it better reflects issues of race and racism in British and World history.  We also continue to work closely with the Stephen Lawrence Trust as well as welcoming other groups and speakers to address issues around racism in all areas of life.

Last week I sent a filmed message on the subject of Black Lives Matter to all pupils asking for their feedback as to how, as a school, we too can make positive change. Additionally, I asked our parents for their thoughts via a letter sent home on Friday.  We would welcome your feedback also. Please do get in touch via  Please also get in contact if you would like to find out in more detail how JAGS has addressed the curriculum and extra-curricular activities with the aim of being more inclusive and diverse.

I would like to reiterate how committed JAGS is to making positive change ensuring that anti-racism becomes a core part of our education for pupils and staff alike.

With best wishes,

Sally-Anne Huang, Headmistress

James Allen’s Girls’ School
