An End of Year Message from the Headteacher

End of Year Message 2016

St George celebrated its most successful year for achievement with both our attainment and progress making us one of the most successful schools in the country.  This was further confirmed by our recent Local Authority Inspection which graded us outstanding in all areas.
 

The college continues to strengthen with more than 400 families choosing St George as a preference for admission in 2017, with over 200 being their first preference.  This has been a long term project; ten years ago first preferences were 50 students for 150 spaces. I would like to pay tribute to the governors, staff and students who have all worked hard and believed in the transformation of St George.

 Mr G Wilson
Headteacher
