The Curriculum

St George’s adds value at every level of a girl’s education. Pupils take GCSEs and IGCSEs at the end of the Fifth Year (Year 11). At Sixth Form most girls study three A Levels alongside the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). In addition, all sixth formers take part in a non-examined enrichment programme.

Games & the Arts

All girls sample representative sport, play a role in a drama production or perform in a musical ensemble. In many cases, pupils go on to high-level performance in these pursuits. A state-of-the art swimming pool opened in September 2019.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is at the centre of the education we provide. We believe focused pastoral care and wellbeing support enables girls to access the curriculum and co-curriculum areas with greater success. We have small tutor groups with dedicated tutors and Heads of Year who know how to support their particular year groups well, working alongside Housemistresses and resident staff who all feed into ensuring girls have a balanced approach to life at St George’s.

University Places

74% of sixth-form Leavers have gone to their first choice university in the last three years.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

St George’s is a place where girls flourish academically, creatively, physically and morally, where risks can be taken, lessons are learnt, and challenges are welcomed. By developing the girls’ love of learning and individual talents, they become confident, capable and connected young women with a strong sense of self.

Outstanding Characteristics

  • Extensive range of opportunities, clubs and activities with a significant focus on the arts, music and sport
  • Strong for value-added, St George’s girls regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest
  • Positive and supportive pastoral and boarding ethos
  • Small class sizes
