Headmaster's Welcome

Dear Parents,

We live in ever more complicated times, and as such it is imperative that we educate our children in order that they mature into great professionals and great people that can take advantage of change, rather than fear it. As many of the traditional careers disappear, or evolve, attractive, new and unheard of opportunities arise in which one can now gainfully develop. It is essential thus that our students learn in a School that provides all that is required to cultivate the necessary skills for their uncertain future, within a caring and motivating environment that caters for all types of learning and the seven components of wellbeing.

This in mind, St George’s, with almost one hundred year of British educational presence in Lima, has this year adopted an exciting new curriculum for the Junior School called the International Primary Curriculum, the choice of over one thousand eight hundred other top level schools around the world in over ninety different countries. We have the honour to be the first School in Peru accredited to this marvellous programme. Its implementation will ensure that our students arrive at the Secondary section perfectly directed towards the world famous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme with very high level thinking skills and creativity firmly in place.

With an excellent staff and a high percentage of first language English use across all levels of the School, our students will ever more become global citizens, able to communicate freely in both Spanish and English, several in a third language, with all the soft skills required by modern society practised and established. Their internationalism and bilingualism are boosted through our participation in groups such as ISCA (Independent   Schools Cultural Alliance) arranging foreign visits.

Jenny Arledge once quoted:

"Technology can become the “wings” that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before."

Here at St. Georges, with this 21st Century spirit in mind, we have embraced this magnificent tool of technology, becoming a Google School, which coupled with a challenging curriculum will have the students confidently engaged in the construction of their own education. Banks of iPads and Chromebooks, with a wide bandwidth and expert staff ensure the space for all of our students to advance their own research and investigation techniques at their own pace, as that is where the most effective learning takes place.

St. George’s College is a fine school with a fine future. I thank you for putting your confidence in our educational offer and am sure that together we can equip your children, our students, for anything and everything that will cross their paths. They will be fully prepared and university will be a breeze.

Let’s have a great year!

Dr. Graham Gisby Gilbard
