Founding Principles of St George’s School

Women’s Educational Movement 

In the late nineteenth century the founders of St George's School campaigned for equality in education. They believed that equality for women could be achieved only by equal opportunities in education.  St George’s was set up by them with the precise intention of educating young women so that they might enter Higher Education and the professions. 

Today our Founders' far-sighted ideas still influence the school and help to shape the way we work.

Educating young women

As educators, the onus continues to be on us to lead, whilst equipping girls with the range of academic and life skills needed to become ‘women of independent mind’ for the future.
