Principal's Welcome


Our aim here at St George’s British International School in Rome is to provide our students with a world-class education. From the school’s foundation in 1958 we have had a clear vision of what we want our Georgians to achieve.

We want our pupils to be:

  • Able to reach the highest academic standards through being analytical, critical and compassionate thinkers
  • Capable of relating their classroom experience to the world outside so they become informed, active participants in local and world affairs
  • Truly international in their outlook, respectful of other cultures and attitudes, and conscious of their shared humanity
  • Confident leaders, ready to take a risk and make a difference in the challenging world they will inherit

Our teachers create a wide range of opportunities for learning by using the best of British and international educational practice: our curriculum culminates in IGCSE exams in Year 11 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma at the end of Year 13 - qualifications that are highly respected by all organisations around the world.

But, as I hope you will soon discover, St George’s offers so much more than this. Whether it is exploring the vast cultural heritage of Rome and Italy or representing the school in one of our many sporting teams, tackling a peak in the Alps or supporting an orphanage in Zambia, we want our Georgians to be challenged and stimulated at every stage of their school life so they can become the best they can be.
