Dear applicant,

Thank you for considering joining our welcoming school community at St George’s in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. I have the great privilege of leading a dedicated and loyal team of staff who are committed to providing an inspiring environment for our sparky, confident and kind girls to grow up, learn and develop in. We teach and learn within a beautiful campus which inspires us every day.

Whether it is the panoramic views of Edinburgh from our Upper School library windows, the secret leafy hideaway of our Fantastical Forest or the creative corners of the dedicated Arts buildings, the school is buzzing with the hum of activity and debate. St George’s has been dedicated to educating girls since 1888, and the same guiding principles of boldness and vision sit at the heart of the school, albeit in an entirely different and modern context.

We welcome applications from potential staff who genuinely enjoy working with young people and who are committed to providing a warm and inspiring environment designed especially with girls in mind. Our school community is one where every individual is valued and we welcome a range of perspectives and insights. We always seek to ensure the education that we provide sets our students up well for their futures and is sector-leading. If this sounds like the kind of school environment you would like to work in, please do apply to our Human Resources department and I hope to meet you in person soon.

Yours faithfully
