St George’s is a unique place to work. It is the perfect blend of high quality, innovative teaching and a community which cares. It has a highly supportive pastoral system as well as a residential state boarding community, all of which is firmly cemented in our Christian principles and strong commitment to our values of mutual respect, endeavour and sense of community.

We hope that you will share our enthusiasm and drive to continue to make St George’s an exciting place to work and learn.

Join us for a career at a school that certainly wants us to "Aim Higher".
