St George’s School for Girls – Independent Day and Boarding School in Edinburgh

St George’s School is a flourishing, all girls’ day and boarding school set in beautiful grounds in the heart of historic Edinburgh.

Established in 1888 by the pioneers of women’s education, St George’s is Scotland’s largest all girls’ school - and the only all-through independent private school in Edinburgh for girls aged 2 to 18. 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.

Rated “Excellent” by Education Scotland in 2015, St George's achieves consistently outstanding results in both Scottish and English exam qualifications: from 2013-2016, the Best-Schools website ranked St George’s amongst the top two Scottish Independent Schools for Advanced Highers.
