G20 Schools is an informal association of secondary schools initiated by David Wylde of St Andrew's College (South Africa) and Anthony Seldon of Wellington College (UK) in 2006.[1]

All the schools claim to have a commitment to excellence and innovation of some sort.[1] The G20 Schools have an annual conference which aims to bring together a group of school Heads who want to look beyond the parochial concerns of their own schools and national associations, and to talk through some key issues facing education, the world, and themselves as educational leaders.[1]

There are actually more than 20 schools in the group, with membership by invitation and vote of existing members.
