"Schoolgirl" is the first single from the 1986 album Another Step by Kim Wilde.

Released in Australia and several European countries (although not the UK), it was the first single of Wilde's career on which she was given co-writing credits. She was given sole writing and production credits on the B-side to the single. "Schoolgirl" was inspired by Wilde's younger sister, Roxanne, and was written shortly after the Chernobyl disaster.

The 12" release of the single featured an extended remix called the Head Master-Mix.
