Job Description

Confident, Capable, Connected 

St George’s Ascot (SGA) is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (both full and tailored) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community. Visitors are impressed by our facilities within a beautiful setting and the ambition of our educational provision, but most of all they are delighted by the girls who are truly special.

Our unique extended day allows all girls the time and space to foster confidence, independence and academic curiosity providing a future-facing education exclusively for girls in a world that was not designed for girls and introduces the girls to contemporary subjects and topics, through speakers, workshops, classes and visits.

Our academic results are impressive, with the ‘value-added’ in public examinations a real strength. We understand how girls learn effectively and we regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest. Our pupils achieved the following results in 2022:

A Level: 71% A*-B, 100% pass rate, GCSE: 41% 9/8 , 60% 9-7, 98% 9-4

In 2022 at GCSE, St George’s was placed in the top 5% of schools nationally for value added.

St George’s offers an education that is grounded, relevant and fosters employability.
