A Message From Charles Marchetti, Chair of Governors
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Our college year for 2019/20 has started on a great positive note fuelled by our remarkable GCSE results, keeping St George as the best performing mixed school in Southampton and positions us within the top 15% of schools nationally.
Our September Admissions, which were substantially oversubscribed, led to more appeals than we have ever experienced before. A testament to our success and the overwhelming demand for places. In addition, our intake of baptised Catholic children has reached 98%.
You will see that work has indeed commenced on our new £5 million Science & Technology block along with other peripheral activity such as, a new Multi-use Games Area (MUGA), four new modular classrooms, additional girls’ changing facilities and additional parking bays situated outside of the main gate.
We are now into a third year of stable leadership with James Habberley, our Headteacher, and the partnership-alliance with St Anne’s provides us with the continuity and management oversight of Lyn Bourne as our Executive Headteacher. For the third year in succession, the annual Local Authority Inspection has again recognised our ongoing commitment to excellence with an Outstanding grade classification.
The ASPIRE values and our Christian ethos continue to play a huge part in the day to day welfare of the students where Safeguarding, Pastoral support, team spirit and the recent appointment of Fr. Luca as our new Chaplain all contribute to the St George family spirit.
With a new academic year just started, let us pause a moment and think how we can all work together and help each one of us in this St George family Aspire to become all that God has created us to be.
I look forward to hearing from parents, staff and students with comments, questions or concerns.
With best wishes.
