Rather, the results are used as a guide in order to understand the pupil's current level of learning, and to ensure that they can be appropriately supported - and challenged - during their time at St George's.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

At St George’s we are proud of our rich history of providing a world-class education to international families in one of the world’s most iconic cities. Our student body - uniquely in Rome - represent 87 nationalities, infusing our school with ambition, inclusivity and vibrancy.

Teaching approach of the school

Our highly-qualified team of teachers includes many leading educationalists and experts in their field who inspire the pupils to genuinely be the best they can be. As a leading school, we are committed to not only recruiting and retaining the very best teachers, but also to ensuring that we constantly develop and improve the education they provide for our pupils through a focus on training, coaching, research and innovation.

Our close links with the world’s highest performing and most aspirational universities ensure Georgians are filled with ambition and have the highest possible expectations for their future. Whilst our IGCSE and IB results are among the best of any school of its type in the world, and are comparable with leading independent schools in the UK, we believe that a truly outstanding education is about so much more than just examination results. Our focus on the nine Cs ensures our pupils become highly successful individuals who are equipped to excel whatever the global economy of the future looks like, but who are also proud of who they are and their own unique combination of qualities, talents, passions and challenges.

Our rich programme of extra-curricular activities allows pupils to develop a wide range of interests beyond the curriculum. Our sports facilities are without parallel in the city. Our performing arts and music productions are breathtaking in both their ambition and scope. The artwork that adorns the school would not look out of place in any professional gallery. And, perhaps unsurprisingly for a school with such close links to the city’s diplomatic community, we have consistently excelled on the international stage in our Model United Nations endeavours.
