St George’s Preparatory School, consisting of the Pre-Preparatory, Junior Preparatory and Senior Preparatory, is an independent, co-educational school for children ages 3-13 and is situated in Park Drive, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Founded in 1936, the school caters for approximately 420 children from Grade 000 to Grade 7.

St George’s provides a warm, caring environment that nurtures the complete person, enabling students to develop their full potential. There is something magical about St George’s that sets it apart.  It’s not just the exceptional teaching and the beautiful surroundings, it’s the joy of watching the children who come here flourish and grow.

St George’s is characterised by the enduring qualities of warmth and friendliness.  Kindness, mutual respect and strong moral values create a lasting foundation for life and learning.

We strive to provide an excellent all-round education to all of our pupils, and we offer a stimulating and challenging academic programme, a vibrant sporting programme and a wide range of cultural activities. We invite you to make an appointment to view our very special environment.
