St Margaret's School for Girls is an independent day school for girls in Aberdeen, Scotland. Founded in 1846, it is the oldest continuously operating girls' school in Scotland. The Good Schools Guide describes St Margaret's as a "jolly nice old fashioned school with proper values and the best of modern teaching methods."
It is a member of the Scottish Council of Independent Schools (SCIS), Girls' Schools Association and Queen Margaret of Scotland Girls' Schools Association.
St Margaret's was founded in 1846 and named after Queen Margaret. The nursery school for ages 3 to 5, known as The Nursery at St Margaret's (formally The Daffodil Nursery), opened in 1937 and is coeducational.
In 2012 a teaching assistant at the school was removed from the GTCs register after she removed a student's tooth.
