St George’s School is a highly regarded girls’ day and boarding school set in tranquil parkland in a popular residential area of Edinburgh.
Established in 1888 by the pioneers of women’s education, the school is one of Scotland’s largest girls’ schools and the only all-through independent, private school in Edinburgh for girls from 3 to 18 years. Boys are welcome in the nursery and to the end of P3 by 2024.
Our 'YES SHE CAN' approach, embodied in the abundance of strong female role-models and the range of opportunities on offer helps inspire every girl to find the path that is right for her. Our academic curriculum is a unique mix of GCSEs at 16 followed by Highers and Advanced Highers in the Sixth Form.
