  • Brief Description: As one of the oldest girls’ schools in the UK, we understand the distinctive needs of girls. Our unique diamond structure means that Junior School children and Sixth Form students benefit from a fully co-educational approach to learning while at secondary level girls are able to thrive in a single-sex learning environment. Throughout, however, the girls participate in outdoor education, music, creative projects and social activities with the boys of Stewart’s Melville College.

    Girls thrive in an environment of academic excellence and are offered an exceptional range of subjects in the sciences, humanities, languages, expressive arts and more. They experience unrivalled opportunities to challenge and express themselves and the girls emerge positive, articulate and responsible citizens.
