St. Margaret’s School is the oldest girls’ school in Singapore. The school was established in 1842 by Maria Dyer, a missionary of the London Missionary Society. Initially, the school operated in a shophouse on North Bridge Road. In 1853, the Society for Promoting Female Education in the East sent Sophia Cooke to Singapore to become the Principal of the school, then known as the Chinese Girls’ School.
