Jane likes to tell girls and staff to “feel the fear and do it anyway” believing as she does that life is all about embracing challenge and learning how to deal with failure.
She is a keen sportswoman who still runs competitively when she has time and who wholeheartedly advocates the mood-changing and life-enhancing effects of sport. She wants all girls to acquire the exercise habit before they leave school.
She encourages girls at her school to be ‘appropriately academic’ which means both taking academic work seriously and knowing when to stop and do something else.
