St George’s College is a co-educational day school with a Christian ethos and is committed to academic excellence and moral integrity. St George’s offers a wide range of activities geared towards developing each of our pupils intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We work tirelessly to ensure that we provide an environment where each child is encouraged to do his or her best.
At St George’s we are dynamic and outward looking and believe that our pupils need to engage with the world in a manner that pushes them out of their comfort zones and teaches them to face the challenges of life. Throughout this we give our pupils the necessary support and guidance in a manner that promotes self-confidence and responsibility.
We believe that our pupils will one day be leaders and contribute positively to our beloved country’s growth and development. We therefore develop strong independent thought among our pupils and provide them with many leadership and community service opportunities. The atmosphere of St George’s is caring and supportive. We are not a large impersonal place and instead teachers and pupils know each other well and thus feel a real sense of value and belonging. St George’s is truly a “school with a difference” where each child is valued.
