Happy, together: Our genuine pastoral care
Generosity of spirit, open-mindedness, courage and kindness… St George’s is brimming with the attributes that matter most.
After all, the values represented by our Chaucerian motto: Trouthe, Honour, Fredom and Curteisye, guide everyone’s behaviour within our supportive community of happy, healthy and resilient young people.
We know our pupils – and their families – exceptionally well and this is the foundation of all we do. This all starts with the excellent relationships between teachers and pupils in form classes. With maximum class sizes of 23 (and frequently smaller), our teachers ensure every girl thrives, makes good progress and feels fully involved in school life.
Learning from mistakes and celebrating successes, every
pupil is encouraged to see their own strengths and engage positively
with feedback. With plenty of positive role models available as form
prefects, House captains and ‘Listening Ears’ representatives, there’s a
real sense of community and supportiveness in which to develop a strong
sense of self.
Our programme of Personal and Social Education prepares girls to face the world with confidence, inner strength and high self-esteem. There are also evening talks for parents, often reflecting classroom topics alongside other relevant issues for parents.
We have a full-time nurse and counselling provision – well used by pupils and completely free from any stigma. Plus, a much-loved ‘Therapet’ session every Friday, where our furry friends lend a listening ear!
Above all, we understand the specific needs of girls and how to guide well-rounded, well-grounded individuals to be the confident, accomplished young women of the future.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
At St George's, we embrace and celebrate diversity. We go beyond mere acceptance or tolerance; we actively support and thrive on the differences among our students, staff, and community. Our school ethos is rooted in fostering individual growth and success. Read about our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
