St George's Lower School
Primary 6, Primary 7 and Secondary 1 Education – Lower School
Click on the video to find out about life for the girls in our Lower School (10 - 13 years) as they move from primary to secondary education.
Welcome to St George’s Lower School which consists 3 year groups – Primary 6, Remove (Primary 7) and Lower Four (Secondary 1). Our girls range in ages from 10-13 years for this part of their education.
The warm and supportive atmosphere of our private Lansdowne campus, (neighbouring the main campus which is across the road), encourages our girls to develop at their own pace at a time of significant physical and emotional change in their lives.
These three year groups, which are around 160 girls in total, benefit from having the Lansdowne campus all to themselves where all their experiences are designed to suit their particular needs.
During her time with us in Lower School, your daughter will experience several gradual and smooth transitions which are supported by a curriculum that was praised in the Inspection Report (2015) as "excellent".
A key feature of our education, which is different to that of most other Scottish schools, is our early specialisation at Remove (Primary 7) when girls begin a full secondary education, taught by specialist subject secondary school staff.
