A Timetable Of Improvements
A refurbishment programme at St George’s School, Edgbaston, has seen facilities significantly improve over the last 12 months. The arrival of a new headmaster in 2010, Sir Robert Dowling Kt, proved a catalyst for change and the school now has even more to offer its students.
The library, housed in the original Georgian building, has been extended and redecorated, creating a large and flexible space for pupils. There is a new art block with ceramics room and a dedicated dance and drama studio. The sixth form has moved to a different building, offering teaching rooms and leisure space designed to meet the needs of young adults.
St George’s opened in 1999, offering a one-school community for boys and girls from three years of age to eighteen. With a strong emphasis on pastoral care, students feel reassured both academically and emotionally, leading to a richer and more fulfilling education experience. Feeling part of a community also helps them to settle into school life more quickly and helps promote a greater sense of self-confidence.
The school is also proud of its many extra-curricular and enrichment offerings, which include eco-school projects, the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme and Go Ape experience!
With Sir Bob at the helm St George’s is rapidly establishing itself as one of the City’s most desirable schools for those seeking an independent education. Why not see for yourself at our whole school open day on 1st October?
