St George's School for Girls - Independent Day and Boarding School

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.

Examination results in both Scottish and English qualifications have been consistently outstanding for many years. We are named as the top Scottish Independent School for our Advanced Higher results by the Best-Schools website UK league tables for 2014 and 2013 and are in second place in 2016 and 2015. 

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