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, a space 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.
St Margaret’s is proud to have been named this year's Sunday Times Scottish Independent Secondary School of the Year 2020. The award, which was unveiled in the Sunday Times Parent Power supplement in November, is testament to the commitment and dedication of all staff, pupils and parents of St Margaret’s.
