St George's College brings together a rare and exhilarating blend of academic excellence, social engagement, sporting prowess and cultural enrichment.
St George's College offers a comprehensive curriculum to cater for all our pupils’ aspirations.
Our Jesuit Ethos flows from the twofold commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ which stresses the love of God and love of one’s neighbour.
We offer a comprehensive cultural programme which provides pupils the opportunity to develop skills needed in a changing world, and to learn the value of doing everything for the Greater Glory of God.
We have a variety of activities that take place during the term. We are keen to keep you informed on up and coming events you maybe interested in.
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.
