St Margaret's School for Girls is an all-through, independent girls' school in Aberdeen for students aged 3-18. Founded in 1846, St Margaret’s is the oldest all-through girls’ school in Scotland. It is an independent charitable trust that welcomes pupils of all denominations and faiths.

Values and vision

St Margaret's School for Girls believes that its single-sex setting helps to create a sympathetic but challenging learning environment. Teachers aim to offer their pupils a fully-rounded education through which each girl can realise her full potential. It endeavours to provide each student with sound academic knowledge, which is essential for entry to higher and further education, and to industry, business and the professions.

St Margaret's wants its pupils to become socially aware and prepared to cope with the challenges of a competitive world. Students are encouraged to show concern for those in the wider community within and beyond Aberdeen.

St Margaret’s is proud to have been named The Sunday Times Scottish Independent Secondary School of the Year 2020.
