About St George's School for Girls

Edinburgh Independent Day & Boarding School for Girls 

We believe in

  • A distinctive ethos which is totally focused on and designed on educating girls

  • Our commitment to individual attention, small class sizes and nurturing girls' full potential

  • A strong student voice developing individuality and self-belief so that each girl is encouraged to be herself

  • Achieving academic excellence (graded 'Excellent' by Education Scotland for Improvement in Performance)

  • A commitment to leadership and diversity broadening our students' views and preparing them for the real world

  • A curriculum that is progressive and coherent with seamless transitions from one stage to the next (Graded 'Excellent' by Education Scotland for Curriculum)

  • An enriching and flexible learning environment with a broad and rounded curriculum

  • Time to grow and freedom to be oneself without the distraction of boys or stereotyping

  • A strong sense of community

 We are unique

  • The only predominantly all-through girls' school in Edinburgh from nursery - 18 years

  • Our Lower School (Primary 6 – Secondary 1) with its unique learning environment where we start secondary education in Remove (Primary 7) a year earlier than most other Scottish schools

  • Our exceptional international programme which promotes an understanding and awareness of ourselves within the Scottish and international context 

"Small class sizes guarantee top-notch learning support and tailored pastoral care, while an excellent spread of sports (Judy Murray has been involved in tennis coaching) and extracurricular activities, ranging from music to fencing, make sure the girls’ horizons are broadened from day one". See our profile in the Tatler School Guide 2020
