Welcome to Our School

Welcome to St. Margaret’s School! This is a community that cares deeply about girls; we have been dedicated to their education, development and well-being for over a century. Together, we help girls become powerful learners with the knowledge, attitudes and courage to thrive – in their studies and careers, and in life.

Our small-scale learning environment provides teachers with the flexibility to personalize learning for each student – building upon individual passions, and challenging each girl to improve her own performance, exceed her own expectations and realize her own potential.

Our academic program is supported by experiential programs that provide opportunities for students to apply their knowledge, take on positions of responsibility and leadership, and develop a desire and a passion for making a difference. Each girl will discover a lot about herself, her peers and the world in which she lives through the experiences she has here.

We believe in the all girl environment, because we see the results every day. Here, girls have the freedom to be daring, explore, try new things and try on new roles. We continually raise girls’ expectations of themselves, and have found that they are more than up for the challenge. They excel academically because they participate fully and enthusiastically in the classroom; they make challenging career choices because they are confident in their ability to succeed in any subject; and they believe in their futures because they are certain of their worth and their potential.

I am continuously impressed by our girls; by their enthusiasm for learning, by their support and encouragement of each other, and by their willingness to challenge themselves. I encourage you to come and visit our school anytime – we would be thrilled to share our stories and our passions with you.

Cathy Thornicroft, Head of School
