Inspirational Women


This year, St Margaret's School for Girls will celebrate it's 175th anniversary. Part of the city of Aberdeen since 1846 and the oldest all-girls' school in Scotland, we have arranged some fantastic online events to mark our anniversary year.

Supported by Aberdeen Standard Capital, our Inspirational Women webinar series continues with Dr Nicola Steedman from the Scottish Government who will speak to us on 8th March, International Women's Day.
