St. George’s College


School Name: St. George’s College
Description: Independent co-educational day school
Acceptance Ages: 11+


St. George’s Weybridge School is an independent co-educational Roman Catholic day school in Surrey, educating pupils from 3-18.

The school was founded in 1869 by a Belgium Catholic order of priests called the Josephites, and was originally located in Croydon. The school soon outgrew its Croydon location and moved near Weybridge in 1884. The Josephite order once represented the entire staff and management of the school.

Girls first joined the 6th Form in 1960. The school became fully co-educational in 1998, whist in 2000, it acquired the nearby girls’ school St. Maur’s, run by the Congregation of the Holy Infant Jesus. The acquisition resulted in another phase of expansion of the school’s campus and provided a new site for the Junior School.

In Years 7 and 8, the school’s emphasis is placed on building skills and striving for excellence across the curriculum, which includes history and politics, geography, religious studies, music, drama, art, biology, chemistry, physics, technology and computing.

Latin is compulsory in the First and Second Year. Pupils will choose a language option which they will continue to study in the Third Year from French, German or Spanish.

Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Rounders and Cricket are sports that are considered co-curricular activities for students in the First, Second and Third Year.

The school offers outstanding pastoral care, with yearly pastoral team meetings that reflect the needs of the pupils. Academic and pastoral matters are closely linked, with each student’s personal development is a core concern.

Characterised by outstanding relationships among the students and between the students and the staff, the school succeeds at creating a highly developed sense of a Catholic community that promotes kindness, tolerance and a sense of justice.

This year, with over half (53%) of papers graded A*/A and 80% graded A*/B and a total of 40 students graded A*/A in every subject, the school remains true to its mission statement: “To inspire all in our Josephite, Georgian Family to be the very best version of themselves.”
