About Alderley Edge School for Girls

Headmistress: Mrs Nicola Smillie

Alderley Edge School for Girls provides girls with outstanding pastoral support, innovative teaching, a broad curriculum and a fantastic array of extra-curricular opportunities.  Each girl is nurtured and supported in small classes and it is our priority that each girl reaches her individual potential and becomes the best she can be.

We value the successes and achievements of all our girls; both academically and in other contexts, from dance to drama, music to sport.  Girls leave as confident, articulate and mature young women who can achieve in the world beyond our school gates.

Alderley Edge School for Girls is a community. All our girls, from those in Nursery at the age of two, through to Sixth Form at the age of 18, feel safe and secure and benefit from being in a school positioned in a vibrant village environment.

The School is a high-achieving, academic and dynamic school which fosters the well-being of each individual within an exciting, challenging and supportive environment. We recognise commitment, hard work and success, setting the girls the challenges they need to develop their talents to the full.

We are proud of our school and its Christian values, yet respect the beliefs of others in our community. We believe in social justice for all and feel a sense of responsibility for those less fortunate, for whom we provide support both locally and globally through our fundraising and community service.

The School has recently been awarded Apple Distinguished Status after a huge development in Technology Enhanced Learning.  Girls bring their own iPads into school to enrich their learning experience. Each teacher is also given his/her own iPad to support their teaching. The School has also integrated Apple TVs into classrooms, corridors and the newly built fitness suite.

In June 2021 the Independent School Inspectorate (ISI) undertook a full inspection at AESG. The School was given the highest possible 'Excellent' rating. The inspection was focused on the pupils' academic and other achievements, as well as their personal development, with the school being found to be excellent across each area. 

We are a proud member of the Girls’ School Association and we value the importance of an all-girls’ education and the benefits this provides for our students. There are numerous opportunities for girls to develop both team working and leadership skills and to help guide the school and their peers.  In this way our students learn important life skills which prepare them for the world of work and they leave us as impressive young women who make a difference.
