About the School

St George’s School is unique: it is the only all-through, all-girls school in Edinburgh.

Here we promote educational excellence both inside and outside the classroom. Our distinctive character encourages each girl to be herself in an environment expressly designed for girls. Through a wealth of opportunities and an ethos promoting high expectations, girls gain in confidence and develop ambition so that they may achieve their full potential.

In a full school inspection by Education Scotland in 2015, the school was awarded the highest possible grading of "excellent" in three categories. An "excellent" rating was given to the school's curriculum, improvement through self-evaluation and also for performance (which covers examination results, attainment and achievement further up the school).
