St George’s School, Ascot

Why choose St George’s? It is a traditional school in its values and yet there is a sense of purpose and ambition about the place; it has small classes, strong pastoral care and an unusual breadth of opportunity in the co-curricular program; more than that, the girls are given space and support to become the very best they can be; these are the things that make St George’s stand out from the crowd.

St George’s is a small, thriving independent school for girls aged 11-18 with a strong caring and cohesive ethos. The school is set in 30 acres of stunning grounds, located in Ascot, only a 30 minute journey from central London.

St George’s examination results are impressive and the school is in the top 5% for value added. In recent years, Upper Sixth leavers have achieved places in a number of Russell Group and North American universities with 10% of the current Upper Sixth awarded conditional offers for Oxbridge. Each year several Georgians also continue their study of Fine Art at a number of prominent art schools.

Boarding is an integral part of the school’s culture with roughly half of pupils enjoying the opportunities boarding provides. St George’s offers both full and tailor made boarding and takes great pride in the consistently warm, inclusive culture of the diverse, close-knit boarding community.

The Arts are fabulous at St George’s with a broad co-curricular programme available to all pupils in Drama, Music and Dance. Facilities include a 300-seat theatre, a mirrored dance studio and purpose-built Music School. The school offers 5 incredible theatrical productions a year alongside GCSE and A Level pieces. The Music Department is equally impressive and ‘Music for all’ is the fundamental principle of the department’s work. LAMDA qualifications and external, specialist tutoring are also available including Dance lessons from the award winning Natalie Vincent School of Dance and Drama.

Sport is also central to school life. Lacrosse, netball, swimming, tennis, athletics, rounders, squash and polo are all played competitively and there is a strong focus on work ethic and resilience within teams at every level. The ambition is to build self confidence and enable and inspire the girls to define their own experience of a physical education. With extensive facilities available, including a new 25m, 6 lane swimming pool, and a wide-ranging co-curricular timetable to support girls’ interests, sport remains an area of great achievement within the school.

Bursaries & Scholarships

St George’s is committed to broadening access to the school by offering means-tested bursaries. A limited number of bursaries (up to 100% of the tuition fees) are available to support girls whose parents are not able to afford the fees in whole, or part, subject to availability of funds. All applications for bursaries are considered on the basis of individual circumstances and are means-tested. Bursaries can be applied for in addition to a scholarship, or on their own.

Bursary assessments are independent of the admissions process and an offer of a bursary should not be considered an indication about any offer of a place.

St George’s scholars are a valuable part of school life, and events and activities are arranged throughout the school year to enable scholars to excel.

The school offers Academic, Art, Drama, Music, Sport, Swimming, Performing Arts and All-rounder scholarships at First, Third and Sixth Year (Years 7, 9 and 12) entry.
