** Elsewhere, the canonical setting of the Convent School of the Spiteful Sisterhood of Seven-Handed-Sek (SHS) is expanded upon and is revealed to have the Discworld's equivalent of [[CatholicSchoolGirlsRule]] Catholic Schoolgirls. Compared to the Assassins' School, SHS is more mainstream and typical of the sort of general education the Disc gives to its daughters. Who are tended by kindly and caring nuns with a deep commitment to educating their charges and turning out well-adjusted young ladies. It's not their fault they get girls like [[FightingIrish Shauna O'Hennigan]] and [[FieryRedhead Rebecka Smith-Rhodes-Stibbons]].

SchoolgirlSeries can also have more serious or romantic elements, but are similar in how their main focuses are on the [[DayInTheLife day-to-day]] activities of a group of girls in school and the friendships that grow through them. Sometimes there is a main heroine in the story and if that is the case, the series may have some ComingOfAge elements.

In Japan, these kinds of series often overlap with {{Moe}} and almost always have men as their target demographic. Even so, SchoolgirlSeries rarely delve into FanService.

A subgenre of SliceOfLife, SchoolgirlSeries tend to revolve around a group of female classmates and their antics and adventures during and after school. Depending on how comedic they are, such series may feature a rather unusual school where [[RuleOfFunny highly unrealistic things happen]]. Having a ManChild teacher in control of a WackyHomeroom is not uncommon in SchoolgirlSeries though a StraightMan educator may be swapped in to form a contrast with the outrageous behavior of the main heroines. A SenseiChan character may be thrown into the mix in order to incorporate some kind of friendly adult perspective.

Male characters may appear, but they rarely enter into the main cast and if they do they are [[TokenGuy outnumbered by female ones]]. Occasionally, this element is used to such a degree that one may wonder why EverybodyIsSingle and yet people rarely mention relationships or dating in many of the more comedy-centered SchoolgirlSeries.

* ''Manga/KOn'' fits the SchoolgirlSeries template to the T, telling the story of a group of girls who are members of a light music club at an all-girls high school with the spunky "Sawa-chan" playing the role of club sponsor. There is really only one named male character that reappears in the anime and he is the brother of a club member. [[CanonForeigner He never appears in the original source material]].
* ''Anime/LuckyStar'' mainly focuses on the core group of friends of Konata, the twins Kagami and Tsukasa, and Miyuki along with a few of their classmates and relatives. This series [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade on]] the EverybodyIsSingle part of a good many SchoolgirlSeries when the group wonders why Miyuki does not yet have a boyfriend. It also only has two named male characters that appear for more than a couple of minutes (aside from Anime Tenchou), Konata's dad, Soujirou, and Minoru Shiraishi.
