"Girls' School" is a song by Wings released in 1977.

Recording and release[edit]

Written and produced by Paul McCartney during the first sessions for London Town (before recording was stopped due to Linda McCartney's pregnancy), it was released as a double A-side single with "Mull of Kintyre". Accordingly, it was part of the band's sole UK number one, spending nine weeks at the top in December 1977 and January 1978, although in the UK "Mull of Kintyre" was by far the more popular song. "Girls' School" was in complete contrast to its flip side, being an uptempo rock song.

In the United States "Girls' School" was the more prominently played side, but it only reached #33 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #34 in Canada.[1][2]
