Like many independent schools, we have a longer teaching week. In addition to our 25 60 minute lessons, we run five half hour Morning Meetings, five half hour session of academic Prep or electives in sport and the arts over the course of the week as well as a weekly Saturday school to support the closing of any gaps.

A significant number of pupils are also expected to attend morning intervention from 7.30am. With an extended academy day, pupils have more time in the classroom to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding, as well as more opportunities to broaden their education. 

At St George’s, we believe that there are no shortcuts to success and our pupils would not make the progress they do without more time in school.
