St George’s, Ascot is an independent day and boarding school for girls aged 11-18. The school is situated in 30 acres of stunning grounds just off Ascot High Street, just 25 minutes from Heathrow and an hour from the centre of London. St George’s offers the very best education for its girls by nurturing their love of learning, their academic potential and their individual talents, thus developing happy, responsible, well balanced and resilient young women; confident, capable and connected to the world beyond school.

Notable Academic Facilities

St George's facilities are impressive for a school of its size with a modern science centre, a fully equipped ICT suite and a newly-opened Cookery and Food Technology Room alongside the traditional spacious classrooms.

Wellbeing & Pastoral Care

Looking after the well-being of pupils and staff is at the very heart of St George's ethos. Pupils have a wide range of pastoral touch points woven into their school life to provide a network of individual support. Small class sizes and regular weekly tutor contact build strong relationships between pupils and staff. Many of the Sixth Form girls volunteer as peer counsellors, providing a much valued peer counselling option to girls from across the school. The fully-equipped on-site Health Centre is run by a nursing Sister and support staff. The Sister cares for the girls when they are sick, dispenses medicines advised by the school doctor (who visits weekly or by appointment) and is supported by two school counsellors, who are deliberately set apart from the regular school staff so that if a girl has a personal or emotional issue she can be sure of independent advice. Mental health resources are also available online for all girls and a school chaplain is also available for independent pastoral support.

Advice For Parents

Ideally two years prior to entry point

Typical Child

There is no such thing as a typical St George’s girl as each pupil arrives with their own set of talents and interests. Nor is there a particular type who 'thrives' as all the staff at St George's work hard to develop each pupil individually. Small class sizes are one of the school's greatest assets, allowing teachers to stretch the very brightest, and provide plenty of support for those who need it, enabling every student to recognise their full potential

Financial Assistance

Swimming scholarship and all round scholarship
