Who we are

On 22 March 2023, Alliance member schools voted unanimously to merge with the International Coalition of Girls’ Schools.

The merger will unite the Alliance’s 185 member schools across Australia and New Zealand with ICGS’s membership. Bringing together over 550 girls’ schools across 21 countries representing over 350,000 students.

We advocate for and support the distinctive work of girls’ schools in their provision of unparalleled opportunities for girls. We contribute to the development and promotion of education around the world and the empowerment of young women to reach their potential and become influential contributors to our complex and changing world.
