Edinburgh Independent Day and Boarding School for Girls

St George’s School for girls flourishes as an independent day and boarding school in beautiful grounds in the heart of Edinburgh. It provides an all-round education for girls from 2-18 years.

Your daughter will have unrivalled learning opportunities, excellent teaching and individual support for her personal, social and intellectual development. Our flexible approach to learning and care provides a level of support few private or state schools can match.

We were named as the top Scottish Independent School for our Advanced Higher results by Best Schools in 2014 and 2013 and by the Financial Times in 2012. We are confident that this year's Advanced Higher results will allow us to maintain our leading position in Scotland.

In a full school inspection by Education Scotland in January 2015 the school was awarded the highest possible grading of "excellent" sector-leading in three areas.

Autumn Term Open Mornings Saturday 3 October and Wednesday 7 October 2015.
