St Margaret's School

1563.jpg

St Margaret's is a day and boarding school for 450 girls aged 4 to 18. It is among the oldest girls' schools in the UK – established in 1749 – and offers the finest facilities, old and new. Set in 74 acres of stunning Hertfordshire countryside, the school is within easy reach of London and its international airports. St Margaret's has welcomed a new headmistress this year – Rose Hardy MA (Oxon), MEd, FRSA – and is undergoing a multi-million pound development of its site, which is set to place it among the best-resourced schools in the UK. The hallmark of the school is said to be its exceptional pastoral care and, as a result, grades consistently outstrip national averages. The school holds open mornings and private tours on a regular basis and a visit is highly recommended.
