Vision and Aims


The vision of St George's British International School is to strengthen it's position as the leading international school in Italy by:

Becoming one of the leading British International Schools in Europe with a strong and growing
international reputation for excellence and, increasingly, innovation.



The school plans to achieve this by focusing increasingly on the development of highly successful and rounded individuals. These are young people who are equipped to excel whatever the future holds but who are also unique individuals who are comfortable with their own sense of self. The school aims to achieve this by an increasing focus on what it calls the Nine Cs.

The Nine Cs

At St George’s we believe that there are nine components of success and therefore nine aims which we look to develop in all of the pupils under our care. These are: academic competency, contentment, curiosity, confidence, the willingness to embrace challenge, commitment, creativity, compassion and cultural understanding.



Providing pupils with the necessary abilities, skills, knowledge and understanding to excel both today and in the future


Ensuring pupils are happy, satisfied, self-aware and comfortable in their own skin


Providing pupils with an infectious love of learning and a strong desire to find out more


Ensuring pupils are ambitious, self-assured and have an appreciation of their own unique abilities and qualities. Providing pupils with the confidence to work independently and to lead and collaborate with a team.


Ensuring pupils embrace challenge, have high expectations and readily do things that are difficult and test their abilities


Ensuring pupils are dedicated, have the right attitude and recognise that effort, process and application are more important than innate ability


Ensuring pupils use their imaginations, think critically and develop their own original ideas


Ensuring pupils are kind and show a concern for others and the world around them

Cultural Understanding
