Welcome to St George's School for Girls, Edinburgh


Alex Hems web bioAs Edinburgh's only private all-through girls' school we have a tremendous opportunity to make the education we offer seamless, with smooth transitions from one stage to the next. 

Situated on two inter-linking sites, on a parkland campus, St George's is fortunate to be in the heart of the wonderful cosmopolitan city of Edinburgh.

In an environment free from gender stereotypes, our students flourish, are able to take risks and master new skills. As a result, they not only achieve outstanding academic results, but develop into confident, well-rounded individuals. 

With a Junior School size of about 180 girls (and a whole school of 720), St George’s is relatively small.  Our girls receive more teacher attention than they might get elsewhere, but the school is big enough at the top end to be enormously flexible, especially where subject and course choice is concerned. 

Learning in a global context has been highly valued at St George’s for many years. Living in an environment with girls from different cultures and backgrounds broadens our students' views and prepares them for the real world.

We look forward to meeting you soon at St George's.
