St George’s School was originally housed within the walls of Windsor Castle but moved to the current site in 1892.
Our expansion to the school we are today has required the buildings to grow with us and so they have undergone significant changes over the years. We now offer specialist teaching areas for many subjects and well equipped classrooms.
A purpose-built Pre-Prep School area, located at one end of the main school building, was completed in 1996 providing a safe and inviting space in which our youngest pupils can learn. A separate playground complete with wormery and mud kitchen provides a safe and stimulating area for outside learning and play which can be accessed directly from the Kindergarten and Reception classrooms.
In 2010 we completed the construction of our two fully equipped science laboratories, preparation room and external teaching area. The laboratories are equipped with equipment to teach Biology, Chemistry and Physics effectively. We also have a large fume cupboard, allowing a wider range of experiments to be conducted safely, and a solar telescope.
Completed in 2012, Year 7 and 8 pupils are able to develop key kitchen skills in our Food Tech lab – with work often taken home for parents to sample.
Our well-equipped, light and airy Design Technology room is divided into a clean design area, which can also double up for soldering electronics, and a practical area for woodwork, plastics and light metalwork.
During Summer 2015 our Computing and ICT lab was refurbished and now boasts state of the art equipment, including touchscreen workstations to complement the classroom iPads in use around the school. Interactive white boards are available in all classrooms to enhance the use of technology throughout the school.
All pupils, starting with Kindergarten, have weekly lessons in our swimming pool. Boarding pupils are also able to use the pool for activities at weekends and in the evening – taking full advantage of one of our House Parents being a swimming teacher.
Within the main school gardens there are grass and hard surface areas for play time as well as tennis/netball courts and an outdoor classroom.
Her Majesty the Queen generously grants St George’s School permission to use an area of Home Park Private in the Castle grounds as playing fields. These are used year round for the broad range of sports on offer as well as for the occasional nature walk.
In 2016 we installed a music recording facility in our Old Bank House building. Complete with mixing desk and a suite of 10 iMacs this new addition to our music teaching facilities will allow pupils to explore the technical side of musical production and editing, enhancing the practical learning already on offer.
