Welcome to Alderley Edge School for Girls Prep School, where academic excellence meets personal growth. 

It is with great pleasure and pride that I lead AESG Prep School. The overwhelming warmth from the girls, parents and staff make the school such a pleasure to be a part of and it is through being an integral member of this interconnected family that the girls truly thrive.

The key life lessons and foundation blocks to both academic and life success, such as reading, writing, social skills and learning habits are carefully crafted and nurtured in the Prep School’s classrooms, which makes these first years so precious for each and every girl. Our school motto – ‘Aspire to Be More’ – informs our commitment to have extremely high aspirations for all our pupils. We set ambitious goals for all the girls, believing that they are capable of achieving excellence if we give them the tools and guidance to support them.

ISI Inspection (2021)

'EXCELLENT' - ISI Inspection

AESG was inspected in June 2021 and has been awarded the highest possible grading of 'Excellent'. Amongst the many positive finding, the ISI commented: 

Pupils are hardworking and resilient; they have extremely positive attitudes to learning and are able to work both collaboratively and independently.

Success For Life

We believe that success can be quantified in several ways and that children who can become happy, confident and independent pupils once they leave our care will far more likely achieve the success they strive for. As such, the pride we take in providing a nurturing and supportive environment for our girls through our excellent pastoral care is at the forefront of our minds. It is this duality of approach that allows our girls to succeed academically within a safe and supportive environment, enabling them to bask in the success of today while being prepared for what they may face tomorrow. 


Our Curriculum 

Our experienced staff are dedicated to providing a challenging and comprehensive curriculum that prepares the girls to excel academically. With small class sizes and personalised attention, our pupils have the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions, collaborate with their peers and receive individualised instruction that caters to their unique needs, interests and strengths. 

Alongside daily teaching of Maths and English, the girls have access to a wide range of curriculum subjects from verbal reasoning to mindfulness. Due to our unique setting, the girls are taught a variety of weekly subjects by specialist Senior School staff: English, Maths, MFL, Computing, Music, DT, Art and Drama alongside special educational sessions in other areas such as Science. Girls also have the opportunity to extend their interests in the arts with LAMDA and individual music lessons. 

Pursuit of Academic Excellence 

At the heart of AESG, we believe in the power of knowledge and the pursuit of academic excellence. We invite you to book a tour and experience an environment that challenges and motivates young minds to enjoy a lifelong love of learning.

Our passionate educators are dedicated to cultivating critical thinkers, confident communicators, and independent learners.
