Vision and Aims

At St George's we recognise every child's right to a broad and balanced education in a safe environment that nurtures talent, creativity and individuality in all its forms.

We aim to equip every child with the academic, social and creative skills to flourish in a diverse, exciting and ever-changing world.

We strive to develop confidence, resilience and high self-esteem in all learners so that they are able to persevere in times of difficulty and see mistakes not as failure but as opportunities to learn.

We celebrate diversity and together we learn to value and respect other's views, beliefs and ways of life.

Every child matters, every childhood matters.

The British (serves 60 million)


Take some Picts, Celts and Silures

And let them settle,

Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.

Remove the Romans after approximately 400 years

Add lots of Norman French to some

Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Vikings, then stir vigorously.


Mix some hot Chileans, cool Jamaicans, Dominicans,

Trinidadians and Bajans with some Ethiopians, Chinese,

Vietnamese and Sudanese.

Then take a blend of Somalians, Sri Lankans, Nigerians

And Pakistanis,

Combine with some Guyanese

And turn up the heat.

Sprinkle some fresh Indians, Malaysians, Bosnians,

Iraqis and Bangladeshis together with some

Afghans, Spanish, Turkish, Kurdish, Japanese

And Palestinians

Then add to the melting pot.

Leave the ingredients to simmer.

As they mix and blend allow their languages to flourish

Binding them together with English.

Allow time to be cool.

Add some unity, understanding, and respect for the future,

Serve with justice

And enjoy.


Note: All the ingredients are equally important. Treating one ingredient better than another will leave a bitter, unpleasant taste.


Warning: An unequal spread of justice will damage the people and cause pain. Give justice and equality to all.
