Capable, Confident, Connected

St George’s, Ascot (SGA) is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (full, weekly and flexi) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community. Visitors are impressed by our facilities within a beautiful setting and the ambition of our educational provision, but most of all they are delighted by the girls who are truly special.

St George’s offers an education that is grounded, relevant and fosters employability. Our unique extended day allows all girls the time and space to foster confidence, independence and academic curiosity providing a future-facing education exclusively for girls in a world that was not designed for girls and introduces the girls to contemporary subjects and topics, through speakers, workshops, classes and visits.

Our academic results are impressive, with the ‘value-added’ in public examinations a real strength. We understand how girls learn effectively and we regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest. Our pupils achieved the following results in 2023: A Level: 72% A*-B, GCSE: 39% 9/8 , 61% 9-7, 97% 9-4. In 2023 at GCSE, St George’s was placed in the top 7% of schools nationally for value added.

Graded excellent in the November 2022 ISI Inspection for both quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements and pupils’ personal development, the inspectors commented “pupils’ positive attitudes towards learning are a striking feature of the school” and “there are many opportunities to develop all-round as a person within the co-curricular programme. As a result, they demonstrate healthy self-knowledge, well developed study skills, first-class social skills and an awareness of the world around them”.

The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA), and is ISC accredited.

We look to recruit a part-time Tutor of Italian to provide private lessons to pupils who wish to study the language and guide them in their preparation for GCSE and / or A Level, working on a one-to-one basis.

The number of hours per week will vary on a term by term basis, depending upon the number of pupils requiring language tuition. The successful candidate will be required to work term time only and will be notified in advance, on a term by term basis, of the number of hours they are required to work.
