St Margaret's Anglican Girls School

St Margaret's Anglican Girls School

Ascot QLD, Brisbane City Central & Northern Suburbs

St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School, situated high on a hill in beautiful leafy Ascot, in Brisbane northern suburbs, is an independent day and boarding school for girls from Pre-Prep to Year 12. We also welcome boys in Pre-Prep and Prep.
There are approximately 1,175 students in the school, with around 355 primary students and 820 girls in the secondary school. St Margaret's has a long and proud boarding history and around 185 boarders from Years 5 to 12 are accommodated in the boarding house, which is in the very heart of the Ascot campus. 
St Margaret’s is well known for its focus on academic excellence, quality learning and teaching, and its commitment to pastoral care. Its smaller size is its greatest strength, with a true focus on each individual child and personalised learning.
St Margaret’s girls are engaged, enthusiastic and energetic in all they do. They embrace the many extracurricular opportunities available, which make for very vibrant sporting, music and performing and visual arts programs. Additional clubs and activities also allow girls to explore a range of interests.  

St Margaret's is a local school with a global outlook, offering students a variety of international learning opportunities through an extensive global exchange program in Year 10 and touring options. 
The staff at St Margaret’s are highly qualified and committed to the learning and the wellbeing of the students in their care. The school's six core values - Spirit, Faith, Integrity, Courage, Respect and Passion - and the school's motto, Per Volar Sunata (Born to Fly Upwards), inspires St Margaret's students to grow and achieve their personal best in all endeavours.

As a school of the Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent, worship and spiritual development stand at the centre of St Margaret's. In addition to weekly religious and values education classes, students participate in regular prayer, reflection and formal worship. Age-appropriate liturgies are supported by regular chapel services and whole school celebrations of major Christian festivals occur throughout the year.
