The School Mission Statement

St. George's was founded over 50 years ago and has grown ever since. It is now bigger than ever and, indeed, has reached capacity. It is our intention at the school to create a caring environment and so the present size (440 pupils in the Senior School) is the maximum we believe is possible to still be able to create a friendly, fun, safe and challenging environment.

The aim of the school is to fulfil the potential of each individual child and to do so in a safe and caring environment that aims at the highest international standards. The school draws on the inherited educational expertise of the National Curriculum in Britain and shares the aims of the International Baccalaureate Organisation:

‘to develop the individual talents of young people and teach them to relate the experience of the classroom to the realities of the world outside. Beyond intellectual rigour and high academic standards, strong emphasis is placed on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship, to the end that… pupils may become critical and compassionate thinkers, lifelong learners and informed participants in local and world affairs, conscious of the shared humanity that binds all people together while respecting the variety of cultures and attitudes that makes for the richness of life.’
IBO Council of Foundation, 1996

May Week exemplifies St. George's ethos; it is not just about academic success, it is about building the character of the young people so that they are equipped to meet the challenges of the outside world, starting when they leave school and go to University.
