New Head appointed at St George's School for Girls

New Head, Alex Hems has spent 20 years working in leading girls' schools

Posted by Hannah Oakman | December 14, 2016 | People, policy, politics

Alex Hems will take over the headship at St George’s School for Girls from the beginning of January, following the retirement of Anne Everest.

St George’s, established in 1888 by the pioneers of women’s education in Scotland, is now Scotland’s largest all girls’ school and the only all-through girls’ school in Edinburgh.  

Hems joins St George's at a time when the school is near full capacity, and in the latest full school inspection by Education Scotland, the school was awarded the highest possible grading of "excellent" i.e. sector-leading in three areas.

Alex Hems has spent 20 years working in leading girls’ schools including Wycombe Abbey School, Francis Holland School, St Paul’s Girls’ School, and North London Collegiate School.
