Welcome to St George's College, historically and educationally the most renowned boys' school in Zimbabwe.


Founded in 1896 in Bulawayo, St George's moved to Harare (Salisbury) in 1927, because the current site allowed much greater room for expansion which was inevitable in a young and developing region.


Aspiring to the highest academic standards, (over the years thirty-eight of its alumni have been awarded Rhodes Scholarships) the College has an enrolment of 700 pupils from Form 1 (Year 8) to Form Upper Six (Year 13), including a Boarding Department of over a hundred pupils. St George's offers the public examinations of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), with a choice of sixteen subjects at IGCSE Level, and thirteen subjects at Advanced Level, in order to cater for the varying interests, needs and abilities of its pupils.


Set in its magnificent forty hectare grounds (adjacent to the National Botanic Gardens), the College, which is one of the architectural sites of Harare, has superb facilities for fifteen sporting disciplines on a seasonal basis, ranging from Athletics to Waterpolo; its Boat Club is based at Mazowe Dam, and its Golfers are permitted to use Royal Harare nearby. Culturally the College provides a full range of activities and has always been notable for its Choirs and Drama productions.


St George's College is a Catholic school administered by the Jesuit Order which is recognised world-wide for its schools and universities. (Georgetown in U.S.A., Stoneyhurst in England, and Riverview in Sydney, Australia, come immediately to mind). The Jesuits welcome anyone imbued with their spirit, whether Christian or non-Christian, as participators in their mission, which is to create a strong sense of values in the hearts and consciences of their pupils, as well as developing them into young men of courtesy, ability and talent.
