What the school says...

St Margarets School in Bushey is among the oldest girls' schools in the UK, founded in 1749. It is a selective day and boarding school, yet it draws from a wide range of academic ability. The School is known for its particular focus on strong pastoral care and individual support.

St Margaret's enjoys a rural setting with 74 acres of private grounds which features a range of sports facilities (including its own Sports Centre with a 25m swimming pool, gymnasium and dance studio), woodland and historically-significant Grade II Listed buildings with modern facilities. The School is within easy reach of London and all major UK transport links. Extensive private coach services are offered to pupils across four main routes in the Hertfordshire and North London areas.

Girls achieve excellent academic results at St Margaret's and more than 80% of leavers go on to attend their first choice destination, which are typically Russell Group universities.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
