In 2021, St George’s College will be celebrating 125 years and alongside this the Old Georgians Association will be celebrating its Centenary (100 years).
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.
1998 was a historic year when Vera Kukic became the first female student to don a red blazer in the history of St George’s. Vera was admitted to Upper 6 as a full-time student, needing to complete her A-Levels in one year and as a result, became the first female Old Georgian in a database of thousands of men.
Over the years, numerous Convent scholars trekked across to the College for A-Level classes, but they were only visitors, unlike Vera. Her presence inevitably caused some chaos and excitement and while she expected some special treatment – even attempting senior cross country – she soon realised that blending in was the best option.
Next year will be another historic year when more than 20 ladies enter St George’s College as full-time seniors beginning Lower 6. And while many things will remain as they’ve always been, changes will inevitably occur: uniforms will have been modified to include skirts, stockings and court shoes, and academically, there’ll be an increase in arts and commercial subjects compared to previous all-male intake years. Pupils and staff have also been educated about interacting with female counterparts – many of whom have never experienced this before.
The admission of ladies will certainly create new dimensions and a different atmosphere which are positive and exciting developments in the College’s history, reflecting life outside St George’s walls.
