Welcome to St. George’s School

March News  2015

A very busy and short half-term before we finish for the Easter Holidays. We are working hard to ensure that all Year 9 pupils get the options requested. This is not always easy as timetabling for a school and meeting personal needs is comparable to a giant jigsaw. However, we will strive to please everyone and feel very impressed by the popularity of more traditional option subjects. Do we have a future Prime Minister in school?

Winner of the Voice 2014 – Visits St George’s

IMG_4864Jermain Jackman visited, as part of a three week tour of schools, provided students with the opportunity to learn about volunteer and community projects with National Citizen Service (NCS), which the 19-year-old credits as being instrumental in him gaining confidence. The singer, who won the BBC competition in 2014, performed upcoming single ‘How Will I Know’ before talking about his experiences with the NCS.

He said: “The last few years have been an incredible journey for me and I wanted to be able to share some of these experiences with students at St. George’s School, who are looking ahead to their own futures.

“For me, taking part in NCS in 2012 was a defining moment, helping me to develop the confidence to realise my ambitions. It’s an experience I would encourage everyone to say yes to.”

As part of the opportunities NCS provides, volunteers are able to take part in projects which are important to them through a series of two and three week programmes, with the aim of developing skills for 15 to 17-year-olds.
