Transition from Lower School to Senior School

A seamless transition from Primary education to Secondary education 

St George’s is an all-through school and has a unique structure in place to ensure a seamless transition from primary to secondary education.

Primary 6 pupils are taught on the Lower School campus by class teachers, but have specialist teachers for French (or Spanish), music, art and design, drama and physical education.

In Remove (P7), the girls begin secondary education already familiar with the layout of the Lower School campus and many of their teachers. Although they have a form tutor whom they see every morning, they have lessons with specialist teachers.

During their Lower 4 (S1) year the girls become more familiar with the Upper School campus.

Pupils joining St George’s have a full induction programme which includes joining a class for a ‘taster day’.

At the end of the summer term prior to entry your daughter will be invited to a ‘moving on day’ with their new class meeting their teacher or form tutor before they begin. "Shadows" are assigned to new girls, and there are buddy teams to encourage new friendships across the three year groups during the first weeks.
