The Schoolgirls' Own was a British weekly story paper aimed at girls. Published by Amalgamated Press, it was launched in February 1921 and ran for 798 issues until May 1936, when it was merged with The Schoolgirl.[1]

The main feature centred on Morcove School, a "high class" girls' boarding school for the daughters of the aristocratic and the rich, although the school did also accept some pupils from working-class backgrounds. Cookery and needlework were also featured regularly, as it was at that time "considered vital that young girls knew how to cook and sew".[1]
