The Josephite traditions of the school encourage a strong sense of family where all students are valued and encouraged to fulfil their potential in an atmosphere of mutual respect and compassion.

This atmosphere aims to reach out to all families, Old Georgians, the local community and the wider world. St George's College is proud to have a reputation for being a friendly school where all students are individually known and valued equally whatever their strengths and weaknesses. Great care is taken by the teaching staff to ensure that all students develop into confident and compassionate individuals, which will prepare them to play a responsible role in the shaping of society.

The College has clear policies about equal opportunities and does not tolerate bullying, Christian values have always permeated every aspect of School life. We are a Roman Catholic school which welcomes students from all Christian denominations. It is our wish that during their time at St George's, our boys and girls will grow up within a community where Christian beliefs and principles are a guide for all that we do. This is evident in the liturgical life of our School and in the many ways we have of reaching out beyond our community.
