Working at St George's

Teaching at St George's

St George’s British International School follows a strong British curriculum, it is international in many other aspects: it has been offering the IB diploma programme since 1996 and its pupils represent over 70 nationalities. A wide range of subjects is taught to GCSE/IGCSE level prior to the sixth form and in the IB programme over 25 subjects are offered.

Teachers are highly qualified and participate in pastoral care and guidance through a tutorial system, with specialised advice given on University entrance. Emphasis is on academic excellence and external examinations results are strong. All Year 13 students follow the IB Diploma programme; in 2017, 72 students at St George’s passed the full Diploma achieving an average score of 36.1 (well above the World Average). Alumni of the school are currently studying at some of the world’s leading universities including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial, Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh, Yale, MIT, Berkeley, McGill, the Bocconi and La Sapienza.

We offer one of the best working environments in the world: friendly and collaborative, with interesting pupils to teach. Staff benefit from good facilities which include: fully‐equipped classrooms, seven science laboratories, two dedicated teaching rooms for Information Technology, a specialist Design and Technology area and a Music Department with a sound‐proof room. The work produced by the English Language, Music and Art departments is exceptional and regularly wins prizes. The school’s excellent sports facilities include a new generation all weather rugby/soccer pitch, athletics facilities including a running track, a floodlit astro‐turf soccer pitch, a cross‐country trail, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, a fully equipped sports centre and an all‐weather multipurpose sports area. Specialised learning facilities include SEN (Special Education Needs) and EAL (English as an additional language). A wide‐range of trips are organised both in Italy and abroad.

St George’s aims to maximise the quality of its support for new staff, in terms of both their professional role and ensuring that they have a smooth transition into daily life in Italy. To this end, we conducted independent research into staff views on the strengths of, and areas for improvement within, our existing support arrangements.

As a result, we now have a thorough programme in place, including help with finding and moving into accommodation, coordinating medical arrangements and facilitating a range of social opportunities. Suggestions from the survey included organising a social event with speaker input on different aspects of life in Italy.
