Close to Birmingham’s city centre, St George’s is situated on the Calthorpe Estate and is set within extensive landscaped grounds. With excellent transport links in close proximity to the school, our students come from almost every area of Birmingham and its surrounding boroughs. Our school community reflects the multi-cultural diversity of Birmingham and we welcome people from all religions or none.
Our dedicated teachers are committed to far more than helping our pupils achieve their academic potential, they are also passionate about their character development, encouraging them to achieve their goals and to grow into confident and accomplished adults. We work hard to inspire and empower all our pupils to realise their full potential, enjoy the experience of learning and learn new skills. By challenging them, both inside and outside of the classroom, we achieve effective and stimulating learning and encourage self-discovery. Learning opportunities are further developed through our enriched curriculum and comprehensive programme of extra-curricular activities. We provide a safe environment in which young people can step outside their comfort zones; learn to take risks; foster self-belief and self-awareness; and develop skills such as collaboration, initiative and resilience.
We place great importance on developing these skills as well as the traditional values of loyalty and service, whilst providing an excellent education, fit for the modern world. Our aim is to give young people the knowledge, skills, confidence and strength of character to go on to lead purposeful and happy lives. Their school days are busy and, at times, challenging but also fun and rewarding. It is clear in students’ faces that they are happy to be here.
One of the most special things about St George’s is the warmth of the welcome here, and the quality of relationships between pupils and staff in its Lower and Upper Schools. Our community is a small, caring and compassionate one, where pupils learn to value kindness and service to others. The school enables students to become impressive, confident young people with a set of values of which any parent or future employer would be proud.
There is something magical about our school that can only be experienced first-hand and we look forward to meeting you and introducing you to it.
Mr G Neal and Mrs J Shaw
