Participate, compete and

Strive for excellence

St George’s School provides a rich and diverse range of co-curricular activities,  enabling pupils to explore their potential and find interests in areas new to them. In our most recent ISI Inspection, the St George’s co-curricular programme was rated as “excellent”.

The staff at St George’s firmly believe that educating young people is not just about inspiring pupils academically, but also giving them a really broad range of opportunities. There are over 40 weekly clubs or activities that pupils can attend during lunch or after school. The provision for sport, music and drama is excellent and many pupils participate in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Cyber Centurions Award, as well as an exciting variety of outdoor pursuits. The School also hosts the Birmingham Schools’ Concert Band.

All students are encouraged to participate in a wide a range of co-curricular activities to discover new talents, improve existing skills, encourage commitment and work as part of a team; skills that will serve our students for life. We want them to find activities and hobbies that they enjoy, which will take them past school and often become lifelong interests. Unlike other schools where 10% of students lead on 90% of activities, we actively seek to provide opportunities that will allow all students to be successful and shine.

In addition, academic societies, intra-school sports teams, departmental trips and activities that complement the curriculum, all help students demonstrate a passion for their subjects outside the classroom, which is invaluable for students completing university applications.

& Match

The P.E. department offers a broad range of team and individual sports and activities to pupils during the school day as well as organising regular inter-school matches and fixtures in a range of sports. Pupils from the school also successfully compete at local and regional sporting events. As a result the school has been awarded the Gold Award for Participation and Competition for the last three years by Birmingham Local Authority.

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.

An extensive and personalized

Enrichment Programme

Wednesday afternoon is a designated time for enrichment activities across the whole school. This provides time for pupils to try all sorts of different activities and most importantly to develop new skills and friendships.  The activities on offer change throughout the year on a termly basis providing pupils the opportunity to broaden their educational experiences and try many activities within an academic year. There are approximately twenty options running each Wednesday afternoon, although this varies from term to term. Check out what’s on offer below. If you interests extend beyond what we currently offer, we will endeavour to try and start up a new activity, providing there is sufficient interest throughout the school!
