Alderley Edge School for Girls

Alderley Edge School for Girls is a high-achieving, academic and dynamic school which fosters the well-being of each individual within an exciting, challenging and supportive environment.

We recognise commitment, hard work and success, setting ourselves the highest academic challenges to develop our talents to the full. As one of the top performing independent schools in Cheshire we provide girls with outstanding pastoral support, innovative teaching, a broad curriculum and a fantastic array of extra-curricular opportunities.

Each girl is nurtured and supported in small classes, and our priority is that each girl reaches her individual potential and becomes the best she can be.

We value the successes and achievements of all our girls; both academically and in other contexts, from dance to drama, music to sport. Girls leave as confident, articulate and mature young women who can achieve in the world beyond our school gates.

Alderley Edge School for Girls is a community. All our girls, from those in Nursery at the age of two, through to Sixth Form at the age of 18, feel safe and secure and benefit from being in a school positioned in a vibrant village environment.
