Our School History
Founded in 1876, St. Hilary’s School was the all girls’ school in Alderley Edge. In 1945, another independent all girls’ school opened in Alderley Edge, Mount Carmel Roman Catholic School.
In 1999, the two leading schools merged to become the only independent girls’ school in Alderley Edge, under the name of ‘Alderley Edge School for Girls’.
When our girls say farewell to the school, we do not just say goodbye and good luck for the future; we work hard to keep in touch and continue to offer our support.
We have well established links with many of our alumnae who come back to school to offer advice and mentoring to current girls about their life since entering the world of university or work. Our Aspire magazine features an alumnae section in every issue and when you visit us, you will see many examples of the various successes of our former pupils lining the walls of our corridors. Indeed, our old girls are role models to our current students and provide them with the knowledge that they can succeed in all areas of the workplace.
