About our Junior School
An education for today’s world: St George's Junior School
Our Junior School nurtures children in their most formative years, introducing them to lifetime learning. We help lay the foundations for independent study, problem-solving, and critical thinking, preparing our pupils for the challenges of modern life and laying the foundations for successful primary and upper school education. Our Junior School pupils have curious minds and the motivation to succeed.
Our ethos for lower primary education encompasses so much more than academic excellence. We live in challenging times and aim to equip our pupils with the qualities to deal with life's inevitable downs as well as ups. We cultivate independent and resilient learners, confident in their own voice and secure enough to bounce back from any disappointments.
Our teachers create a caring, supportive environment to foster all these vital qualities, within a curriculum and co-curriculum which makes the school an exciting place to be.
Continuity of education is pivotal to a St George’s education: Junior School benefits from a strong transition programme from Primary 4 onwards. Specialist subject teaching in Modern Languages, PE, Music, Art, Computing and Drama gradually increases as the pupils move through the junior years.
Junior School Structure
With a Junior School of around 100 pupils, every child is well-known by the staff.
We welcome both girls and boys in Nursery and Primary 1-3 and then work with families to find the best education destination for their sons for Primary 4 onwards. We specialise in offering a girls-only education from Primary 4 onwards, leading all the way through to Sixth Form.
Our primary year groups are split into two distinct primary stages: Lower Primary (Primary 1 and 2) and Middle Primary (Primary 3, 4 and 5). Class sizes range from around 14-20 pupils and each year consists of one to three classes.
After Primary 5, girls move from Junior School to Primary 6 in our Lower School. Here they spend three years before transferring to our Upper School 4 (S2).
