Our School

At St George, we ASPIRE to become all that God has created us to be

Welcome to St George Catholic College.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Headteacher at St George Catholic College. It is a privilege and honour to be entrusted with the job of leading such a fantastic Catholic college. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and find out more about our family.

St George is a high performing, oversubscribed mixed Catholic school, with over 600 applications for a PAN of 190 places. Our vision, our mission statement, is “We ASPIRE to become all that God has created us to be”.  This reflects the high expectations and ambitions we have for our students and staff.  We describe ourselves as one big family which is due to our very positive ethos and well-embedded, shared ASPIRE values that are at the heart of everything we do: Achievement, Spirituality, Respect, Independence, Relationships and Enjoyment.

We are proud to say we know each one of our students and take a very personalised approach to their care, academic support and to the importance of our Catholic faith.  Our students live out their faith and become closer to Jesus Christ whilst on their journey at St George.  Knowing our students personally and guiding each of them to achieve their full potential is key to our students' success. It is why we continue to be one of the highest performing schools nationally for the positive impact we have on our students' academic progress. 

We expect nothing less than exemplary student behaviour and a positive attitude to learning while understanding that we can all make mistakes.  We remain determined to continue to improve, to maintain a broad and balanced curriculum and to offer a wide and varied enrichment programme for all students. We work in partnership with our Local Authority and the Catholic diocese of Portsmouth to create a learning community that we are all proud to be part of. Recent local and diocese inspections have praised our ethos, outcomes and the attitude of our students as an outstanding college. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
