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.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Good day and I hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well. Welcome back to our parents from 2020 and an especially warm welcome to all the new parents who are joining the College for the first time this year.
We all find ourselves in a position that is not of our choosing but we are determined to make it a successful year. Again congratulations to our A level students who performed exceptionally well under the most trying circumstances. We await the IGCSE results with anticipation.
Last year I made the analogy between the evolving online teaching and learning experience and that of teachers having to design, build and then fly an aeroplane with very little forward planning. We now all know that distance learning presents incredible challenges and opportunities for teachers, parents and students alike. Everyone’s circumstances are different. More focussed independent learning from home is easier for some families and students than others.
I am going to outline some tips that synthesise what schools around the world have been learning during the last nine months of online teaching and learning. The guidance below can help us all make the best of new and sometimes unfamiliar distance learning environments. It hopefully will prepare you for some of the more practical aspects of learning from home:
While no one is sure yet how long this session of online teaching and learning will last, we do know that it will not last forever. Students take cues from adult behaviour and attitude, so it is important to communicate calm, confidence and hope that we will pull through this crisis together. Managing our own emotions will help our sons and daughters stay focussed on learning and looking forward for another school year.
