We are an independent Roman Catholic co-educational school which welcomes those of
other Christian traditions allowing all to develop their ethical, spiritual and moral values.
We seek to inspire a love of learning and to encourage all to fulfil their aspirations and
potential within an atmosphere of mutual respect and compassion. We strive to promote our Josephite tradition which encourages a strong sense of all belonging to one family which encompasses the wider world.
St. George’s College provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all students. Every
teacher is a teacher of all children. High quality teaching, appropriately differentiated for
individual pupils, is seen as the first step in responding to possible special educational
needs.Students may have Special Educational Needs (SEN) or Learning Difficulties or
Disabilities (LDD) throughout, or at any time during their school career. It is important
that teachers have the confidence and competence to meet the needs of all students.
Firstly all teachers are expected to have an understanding of the learning needs of
students in their classes with specific learning difficulties. This understanding and
competence will enable students to participate effectively in all curriculum areas and
assessment activities, in addition to the broader aspects of school life.
St. George’s College will have due regard to the Children and Families Act 2014, SEND
Code of Practice 2014 and the Equality Act 2010 when carrying out their duties towards
all students with identified SEN/LDD. The College will use its ’best endeavours’ to
ensure that that there is no discrimination against students with any physical, sensory or
learning disability; whilst taking into consideration health and safety implications, the
constraints of the resources, expertise available and the College buildings and site.
Our Mission Statement says that: “we seek to inspire a love of learning and to encourage all to fulfil their aspirations and potential” and it is this ambition that underpins our Scholarship programme.
Scholarships are awarded at the College to recognise previous achievement, acknowledge existing excellence and to show the importance that the College places upon various areas of the academic and wider curriculum.
Scholarships include Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sport.
We recognise that a St George’s education is a significant financial commitment and therefore have a Bursary Scheme to help families who would otherwise be unable to afford our fees, either for any of their children or perhaps for some but not all. An important aspect of the Scheme, therefore, is that even if families are not eligible for assistance for their first child, they may be eligible for increasing levels of help for subsequent children. Please contact us to explore this further.
We offer fee remission of up to 100% for children at the Junior School from Year 3 (age 7+) and at the College at 11+, 13+ and 16+. Remission may include additional assistance with uniforms, school bus, compulsory school lunches, essential academic trips and exam fees.
“Becoming the best version of yourself”.
At the College, supported by an atmosphere of mutual respect and compassion, we intend to build on the foundations laid at junior level to prepare your son or daughter for the world beyond School and to help them choose the best path for their individual abilities, desires and needs.
