To encourage equality, community-mindedness and a business-like purpose, all of our young people wear a standard uniform.
St. George’s offers an individualised approach to learning which includes a programme of work experience.
Smaller classes give each young person more one to one time with their teachers and our curriculum is specifically designed in order to encourage the best possible relationships for learning.
Pastoral staff and mentors organise informal programmes of learning to improve self esteem, social skills and aspirations. Our strong pastoral care and support systems links with the home and family, and includes individual personal learning guides and mentoring for the students.
Specialist teachers, all with Qualified Teacher Status feature in every subject area and the large majority of our teaching staff have experience of working in mainstream schools.
As a member of Titan Partnership, St. George’s benefits from links with trainee teachers undergoing Initial Teacher Training who bring fresh ideas and new perspectives to our school.
Our young people are further supported by a house system, led by experienced pastoral house leaders and mentors.
To ensure the health and wellbeing of all our students, the Academy offers a breakfast club between 8.30am - 9.00am and all students are given the opportunity to have a free hot meal in the dining hall.
