Founded in 1927 as a British School, Saint George s School in Switzerland
aims to combine its well-structured, traditional ethos with academic
excellence in an international environment.
The school stands in a park of 45,000 square metres with magnificent
uninterrupted views of the mountains and Lake Geneva.
The main building houses the administrative offices, assembly hall,
dining room, library, boarding section and secondary teaching facilities.
In addition to spacious classrooms there are laboratories for practical
work in biology, physics and chemistry as well as purpose built
rooms for art, music and information technology. Work started in
September 2005 on the first phase
of a building extension to provide 3 new science laboratories,
prep room, dining room and kitchen.
The junior department is a self-contained unit based in the Chalet.
It is equipped with full amenities including a library and specialist
rooms for music, information technology and cookery.
Sports facilities on the campus are outstanding and include 7 outdoor
tennis courts and one indoor, and playing field.
St. George's School is within easy reach of the motorways and Geneva
airport is less than an hour away by car or train.
Rigorous academic programmes combined with extensive extra-curricular
activities ensure a complete education. Small classes and individual
attention guarantee a high rate of success in public examinations
and entrance into Universities worldwide.
The Junior Department accepts children from ages 3 to 11 and aims
to provide a firm foundation in all areas of education. A broad
and balanced timetable is offered in accordance with the British
National Curriculum guidelines, tailored to meet the individual
needs of each child.
The aim of the lower secondary school years (years 7-9) is to provide
a broad, balanced curriculum. The emphasis is to establish a solid
base in numeracy, literacy and information technology skills, and
to develop good study habits. Students choose from the many subjects
on offer at IGCSE level in years 10 and 11 and follow the IB Diploma
programme in the final 2 years of secondary school.
St. George s School Summer Camp, for boys and girls aged 10-16 years,
accepts students as either day or residential pupils, for four weeks
during the month of July.
