(Duisburg-Düsseldorf, Cologne and Aachen)
St. George´s International School is a private, coeducational and nondenominational day school that offers an English curriculum based on the British brand of learning. Family founded in 1985, St. George´s curriculum follows the English National Curriculum, preparing students for both the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and the British AS/A-Level exams.
For children age two years and older, the St. George´s nursery school offers a full-day or half-day program with English as the main language of instruction. (German lessons are provided for non-German speakers.) In Cologne and Aachen, the Little Dragons program caters to those less than three years of age. German is taught as a foreign language, and additional foreign language offerings include French and Spanish. Thereafter, pupils enter the lower school program (ages 7-11), which is comprised of six 50-minute lessons and is structured around the National Curriculum for England and Wales.
The lower school offers a number of extracurricular activities, including sports, music ensembles, dance groups and language clubs, while the middle school (ages 11-14) offers still more extracurricular activities and after-school clubs. Finally, the upper school (ages 14-18) seeks to provide students with the relevant qualifications for university entrance. Small classes of no more than 20 pupils allow for individual attention to be placed on each pupil and his/her academic needs. St. George´s offers financial assistance for qualified pupils from Year 2 until Year 5 (ages 6-10).
School uniforms are required and cost approximately 200 euros per set. St. George´s offers boarding for girls and boys starting at age 11 in the purpose-built boarding house, which is part of the Cologne campus. Pupils share double rooms with ensuite bathrooms. A family-like atmosphere, qualified and British-trained House Parents, individual academic support and pastoral care, supervised weekend activities and the opportunity to develop lifelong friendships are all part of Germany´s first and only English international boarding school. Full, weekly and flexi-boarding is available.
