The inspiration behind Mary Astell Academy

Linhope PRU has recently been rebranded to the Mary Astell Academy, to better reflect the values and provision of the School.

Mary Astell (Newcastle upon Tyne, 12 November 1666 – London, 11 May 1731) was an English feminist writer and rhetorician. Fighting in particular for women’s rights, she was an advocate for education for all, which is a key part of the ethos at the school.
