A Message From Charles Marchetti, Chair of Governors
Dear Parents & Guardians,
The new College year for 2020/21 has started, although under circumstances never before seen nor imagined. There has been so much planning and painstaking assessment to guarantee that the students under our care will be safe and continue to enjoy an environment to ensure their best possible academic outcomes. This would not have been possible without the dedication of Mr Habberley and key members of his team who have worked tirelessly during the summer break.
Once again, our September Admissions were substantially oversubscribed, an ongoing testament to our success and the overwhelming demand for places at St George.
The new £5 million Science & Technology block is well advanced and expected to be completed by January 2021. Other related infrastructure which has been completed includes the Multi-use Games Area (MUGA), extensive toilet refurbishment and additional parking bays situated outside of the main gate. In the meantime, we have also made significant progress towards the development of a final design for a brand new state-of-the-art Library Resource Centre, plans for an enlarged Chapel, additional toilets to accommodate increased pupil numbers over recent years and a new more welcoming reception area.
We are still officially rated as Outstanding by our Local Authority Inspectorate and subject to any restrictions due to Covid, would expect an Ofsted Inspection visit during this academic year.
Our unique ASPIRE values and Christian ethos underpin the St George family spirit and play a huge part in the day to day welfare of the students through Safeguarding, Pastoral support and every other area of student wellbeing.
As ever, with the start of the new academic year, I would ask you to pause a moment and think how we can all help each other within our St George family community and indeed Aspire to become all that God has created us to be.
I look forward to hearing from parents, guardians, staff and students with any comments, questions or concerns.
With best wishes.
