St George's, Edinburgh
Situated ten minutes from the heart of Edinburgh’s bustling West End on a spacious 15-acre parkland campus, St George’s School, Edinburgh provides an outstanding private education for today’s students.
St George’s is an all-through girls’ school with pupils from the ages of 3 -18 years. The school was founded by pioneering women who were passionate about achieving equal opportunities for their students. We are still pioneers in women’s education, and we never see gender as a barrier to our pupils’ aspirations.
The school employs approximately 212 staff and has a school roll of around 720 girls, of whom 45 are boarders. Boys are admitted to the nursery. In 2022 boys can enter Primary 1 and can remain until the end of Primary 3 by 2024.
At St George’s we expect our pupils to encounter opportunities and empowerment in equal measure. This powerful blend allows them to find their voices and develop independence of thought. We achieve this by offering students a broad and rich all-round education with meaningful positions of responsibility from an early age, creating a ‘YES SHE CAN’ mindset.
With a Junior School size of around 175 pupils and a whole school of 720, St George’s is relatively small though the Upper School and Sixth Form are substantial. For their primary education pupils are taught in small classes (around 16 – 20), big enough to provide interest and dynamism.
High standards are expected of all St George’s pupils and the significant level of individual attention they receive enables them to achieve strong results. Examination results have been consistently outstanding over many years.
The school received an excellent school inspection report from Education Scotland. It was awarded the highest possible grading of ‘excellent’ in three categories. It is also highly acclaimed for its pioneering International Exchange Programme.
