Description St Georges School Ascot

  • Established: in 1877
  • Location of St Georges School Ascot: Ascot, Berkshire, United Kingdom
  • Students age: 11 to 18 years
  • Total number of students: 270 people (118 at the guesthouse)
  • Type of accommodation: residence, boarding house (available from 11 years)
  • Educational programs: GCSE, A-level (middle and high classes, Sixth Form).

The independent private school St. Georges School Ascot, founded back in 1877, today deservedly is considered one of the most prestigious women's boarding schools in the UK - and this despite the fact that it was originally based as a preparatory school for boys! A separate form of education (only girls) was introduced here in 1904, and to this day the institution follows the established principle. St Georges School Ascot is an active member of the profile organization GSA (Association of Schools for Girls).

GCSE exams are handled by approximately 40 people: according to statistics, girls receive more than 8 subject grades of at least C. According to the A-level program, about 30-40 people are engaged: they take more than 3 subjects, and the average graduation mark for exams is 382.

98% of graduates successfully enroll in selected higher education institutions (approximately 60% prefer to take a year off and rest):

  • 5% choose medicine, veterinary medicine or dentistry
  • 49% - humanities, social sciences
  • 12% study design and art
  • 23% decide on engineering and natural sciences
  • 11% get higher education in professional courses (education, architecture, accounting, sports sciences, speech sciences).

Schoolgirls can optionally take additional individual lessons (paid separately) with professors in the profile.

Girls must wear school uniforms. An exception is made only for high school students on the Sixth Form, for which we allow a general business, formal style of clothing.

St. Georges School Ascot belongs to the Anglican church, the most common in the UK. 4 days a week in the local chapel, compulsory morning meetings are held, and all girls attend the Sunday service and the main Catholic Mass during the year. But in the school children can learn other faiths and religions: representatives of other beliefs can perform their rituals and observe the rules inherent in their religion.

Despite the fact that the board works in a separate education scheme and only girls are studying here, the administration and the teaching staff are trying to diversify the leisure and the curriculum of female students, including representatives of other neighboring schools. Student exchanges, educational trips and tours are constantly organized - for example, a musical journey through Europe, an annual trip to Normandy, skiing at well-known resorts, trips to study the history of art. Also, charity, social and volunteer work is encouraged - it helps girls to grow up patient, compassionate.

The St. Georges School Ascot adopted a rather rigid and strict discipline: the rules must be observed clearly and rigorously, each student should serve as an example for the others. The most severe penalties are laid for smoking, drinking alcohol or drugs. Minor misconduct entails work after class, additional duty.
