A former governess to the family of Nicolai Milyutin, a politician in the government of Tsar Alexander II, Georgina Kinnear returned to Britain in 1874 to promote her interest in the education of girls and women. Following a period at Cheltenham Ladies’ College, in 1877 Kinnear became a founder member of St Leonards School in St Andrews, Fife. In 1880 she was appointed the first headmistress of The Park School, Glasgow.
