St Margaret’s School for Girls, Aberdeen

The only girls’ school in Aberdeen, St Margaret’s has around 380 pupils ranging in age from 3 to 18.

Our school is large enough to offer flexibility and choice in terms of the curriculum and extra-curricular activities, but small enough to ensure that each girl is well known within a friendly and family atmosphere.

St Margaret’s staff are experts in teaching girls and are committed to supporting each girl to be all that she can be both inside and outside the classroom. At St Margaret’s we have specialised in girls’ education since 1846. We believe that a single-sex education offers girls the space in which their intellectual and physical identity can blossom and which is free from stereotype, full of challenge and rich with opportunity and care. It is in this sort of environment that girls can develop the self-esteem and confidence which will enable them to fulfil their potential and make a positive impact on the world.

We provide our pupils at all ages and stages with a rich variety of extra-curricular opportunities. Music, sport, debating, drama, dance, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and many other activities are available. These are enjoyable in themselves, but they also help girls to develop the skills and personal qualities which they will require to be successful and happy beyond school.

At St Margaret’s we are not complacent: we are continually refining and developing our provision to meet the changing needs of our pupils and the demanding world of the twenty-first century.
