Joining St George's

  • Little Dragons Nursery

    Little Dragons Nursery

    Our Little Dragons Nursery is based in our Walled Garden. It’s bright, colourful, and welcoming, with its own dedicated area for our over 2s which has been designed to meet their needs and encourage them to enjoy our exciting, ever-changing range of free-flow activities.

  • Reception & Key Stage 1

    Reception & Key Stage 1

    The Reception children follow the Development Matters Curriculum and Forms I and II (Key Stage 1) follow the UK/Jersey National Curriculum. All children benefit from a well-planned and resourced curriculum. This is enhanced by specialist teachers in music, drama, French, forest schools, PE and swimming. All children travel through the school using the IT suite, the music rooms and the swimming pool. Reception and Form I are based in the well-equipped classrooms in our courtyard. Form II is based in the Manor house. Great care is taken to treat each child as an individual, which is helped by our small class sizes. Children are given every opportunity to develop interests through extra-curricular activities and our vast array of after school clubs. Our staff members are skilled at recognising and maximising every child’s unique talents. Constant communication between staff ensures that children have a seamless transition from Nursery to Reception and into Key Stage 1. This close liaison between staff continues through to Key Stage 2.

  • Key Stage 2

    Key Stage 2

    Our older children, whilst still benefiting from the secure setting of their classroom, enjoy access to our more specialised teaching areas.

    These include a Science laboratory, IT suite, Sports Hall, Art and Design Technology suite, and a Music department. Children at this level begin the thorough preparation for secondary school and, as they progress, lessons are increasingly taught by subject specialists. Help and guidance is given regarding future schools and the children are prepared for a variety of entrance examinations and assessments.  As we start to see children developing, we are aware of each child’s attributes and aspirations. We are therefore able to specifically structure each child’s learning based on their individual potential. Education at St George’s encompasses far more than just the work done in the classroom - we believe in providing a real breadth of experience for our children. Trips away from school provide them with exciting adventures and new learning opportunities with their friends. All children throughout the school go on regular excursions to museums, the zoo and other places of interest that are appropriate for their age. In Form IV & V children are given the opportunity to enjoy exciting on-island residential trips at Crabbé and St Aubin’s Fort. In Form VI children spend an action-packed week in France. Children are encouraged to take responsibility particularly when they become members of the school leadership team. They are encouraged to use their initiative and are supported in their roles ensuring that this important aspect of growing up is given the opportunity to develop.
