Values and vision
St George's School’s motto “Aim Higher” broadly sets out what the school’s ethos is.
The school aims for its students to grow into mature self-disciplined citizens and caring members of society prepared for the challenges they will face. It also aims to have an environment which provides for equality of opportunity and promotes good relations between individuals within the school and in the wider community on the basis of mutual respect.
“Students enjoy an exciting and stimulating curriculum. A diverse range of additional activities helps them to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding extremely well. The headteacher’s high expectations of all staff and students, shared by all leaders, are an important reason why achievement continues to be outstanding. Subject leaders are skilful in making sure that achievement, teaching and behaviour and safety are of a high standard. The governing body is highly influential in the academy’s success. Its members are knowledgeable and provide an excellent level of support and challenge.”
