Admission to St George's Junior School (Primary 1 – Primary 5)

Applying for a place in our Junior School 


When to Apply

Children can join us in each year-group from Primary 1 to 5 at any time of the year subject to spaces being available.

From August 2022 boys will be able to join our Primary 1 year. By 2024 boys will be able to stay at St George's to the end of Primary 3.


Children are invited to spend a full day with the class of pupils to which admission is sought. This is a great opportunity for your child to experience a normal day at St George’s and a chance for them to meet their peer group. A ‘buddy’ is always appointed and your child will attend lessons, sports and activities alongside her buddy. Following informal assessment, the class teacher will advise the Head whether a place should be offered. Evidence from the most recent school report is taken into consideration before an offer is made.

Our Primary 1 Play Morning Assessment is in January 2022.  For other year groups, and new Primary 1 enquiries after this date, assessments can take place at a mutually convenient time.
