Home sweet home…

At St George’s we have a 24 hour staff, here to look after you and help you develop an adult attitude towards a healthy, balanced life. Male and female House-leaders are on-hand to offer help and assistance and look after both your pastoral and academic wellbeing, because there is more to life than study!

The newly refurbished St George’s is a complex of Edwardian villas, with tall windows and ceilings, tiled and parquet flooring complemented by heritage colours and well-equipped classrooms. The dining room serves freshly prepared meals three times a day and students have access to common rooms and kitchen facilities between classes.

The male and female boarding houses have double and single rooms and students are encouraged to make their rooms comfortable spaces to relax and study.  The bathroom facilities have been newly renovated and there are laundry facilities, kitchens and common rooms with games consoles and music tv just like a university halls of residence.

St George’s is the bridge between school and university, where young adults appreciate wider freedoms than traditional boarding schools. Our staff are here to mentor you and help prepare you for an independent life at university.  There are house rules to abide by and town is only a five minute walk from the campus, and it is our aim that students learn to apply a healthy balance between study, leisure and keeping fit, because a healthy mind needs a healthy body.

Students enjoy easy access to shops, cinema, health care and public transport. The local sports centre is a short walk away, and students are encouraged to keep fit with swimming, racket sports and gym all available at the sports centre and running along the seafront is a popular way for students to keep fit!

A student focused activity programme runs organised trips, excursions and activities to help students make friends get to know the area and make the most of their time in the UK.
