Welfare structure at St George’s

An experienced team of heads of year operates throughout Lower and Upper School. Their role is to track the personal and social development as well as academic progress of students.  Heads of year work with a team of tutors who meet on a weekly basis to share information and any concerns they might have for their students. 

The aim is for every student to be known well by at least one member of staff and for the girls to know that there are dedicated staff ready to help, support and guide them throughout their school career.

As students move into the senior years, support is tempered with sufficient challenge, so that students are prepared for the outside world with its ups and downs.
