Alderley Edge School for Girls is an independent day school for girls, located in rural Cheshire in the village of Alderley Edge, England.[1]

The school caters for pupils aged three to eighteen, providing both secondary and primary school education, as well as a nursery and sixth form. Alderley Edge School for Girls is a member of the Girls' Schools Association (GSA) and a MyDaughter school.[2]


Alderley Edge School for Girls was founded in September 1999 from a merger of two local schools - Mount Carmel and St Hilary's. The Sisters of St Joseph founded Mount Carmel School in 1945 and St Hilary's School was founded in 1876 and became part of the Woodard Corporation in 1955. The school combines the Catholic traditions of the Order of St Joseph and the Anglican heritage of the Woodard Corporation. Both religious traditions are taught and girls of all faiths are admitted.[citation needed]
