About St. George's The British International School Cologne


St. George's The British International School Cologne believes that school is a fundamental chapter in a lifetime of learning, and it’s their aim to make it an extraordinary one.

When Marietta Horton founded St. George’s Schools in 1985, she had a unique vision: to offer pupils infinite opportunities to excel, and to lead a life that makes a difference. It is through this culture that St. George’s British International Schools have become a place where children love to go to school.

St. George's School in Cologne fosters this original vision and has grown into a distinctive, highly regarded institution that pairs ambitious academic education that pushes beyond the core curriculum, with a caring pastoral infrastructure which values each individual.

The day school for pupils aged 2 - 18 follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and the National Curriculum of England from Pre-Nursery to Year 9. They provide the opportunity to choose IGCSE studies at Key Stage 4, followed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) in the final two years before graduation. The St. George’s British International Schools are IB World Schools offering the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP).

St. George's School, Cologne, also offers a modern and purpose-built boarding school for pupils aged 14 - 18. The boarding house provides an international family atmosphere with the very best of traditional English boarding.

The four-strand approach - education, innovation, culture and responsibility - is conveyed through relevant programmes and experiences that are collaborative, integrative and pioneering. Graduates join the global community as confident discerning thinkers who are resilient, socially conscious and prepared to make the most of their opportunities. Leading a life that makes a difference, embracing responsibility and seeking to influence others positively.

St. George's school is based in Cologne, the historical, cultural and economic capital of the Rheinland. The school boasts a charming campus with extensive grounds and sporting facilities, and a very well-established faculty and parent community. This is a truly international school community which welcomes pupils and parents from the greater Cologne area as well as from over 45 countries.

The British International School located in Cologne is a hallmark of the St. George’s identity. It has an individual distinct allure, and at the same time embraces common values and guiding principles of the schools in Düsseldorf Rhein-Ruhr and Munich.

This is a school that exceeds in all that it has as a focus meaning educate the future Generation. The teachers are so wonderful and prepared to educate a broad range of bilingual if not trilingual students. This school is the best decision we made for our child

There is a saying that when the water is out of the pool, its easy to see who is swimming naked. The Corona Pandemic has tested Schools and their teachers to the boiling point. Yes, a private school has better access to funding for computers and online learning, but without the dedication of the teachers you have nothing. St. Georges school may have implemented the online learning program, but it was the teachers who ran with it and provided excellent substitute education, even PE. No, online school is not the same as in person learning, and even with the split on and in person teaching, the teachers not only went out above and beyond to teach, but also to protect the children, keeping them in their pods etc. We has parents couldn't be more pleased.

THANK YOU St. George's!! A huge thank you to all the incredible staff who have made the impossible possible. From the beginning of the pandemic the switch from classroom teaching to online learning was super quick. After a few initial teething problems on both sides, but things were very smooth. Teachers were available at virtually all hours of the day and motivated our children above and beyond everything we could have imagined. I personally do not know of any other school, that has such a diligent Covid-19 testing strategy. Every child is PCR lab tested after every holiday and staff are tested every week with a PCR lab test, making it a very safe environment for the entire community. The entire schools hygiene concept is well thought through and their reaction times are extremely fast if there is ever a positive case. Not just during challenging times like this, we thank the school for taking such good care of our children, but also much appreciate all the achievements during more normal times. Our children are truly treated as individuals and love going to school every morning. If there was ever a grievance, the school and its management have always invested a lot of time and energy to find a solution for our children. Thanks again and please keep up the good work and standard!

Good school Overall, and Most of the bad reviews online are just other students trying to be funny. Very Organized during the COVID-19 pandemic. Immediately, online schooling was up and running. Props to the IT department.

Eine sehr gute Schule. Unserer Kind ist seit mehreren Jahren auf dieser Schule und wir waren begeistert wie gut, gerade jetzt während der Corona Zeit das Unterricht online weiterlaufen konnte.

Mehr Schein als Sein!!! Heuchelei, Verlogenheit, und Intransparenz Ich möchte kurz erwähnen, daß ein relativ neuer Negativkommentar , warum auch immer, gelöscht worden ist! Meine Erfahrungen in dieser Schule Ich habe ein sehr schlechtes, arrogantes und ignorantes Management erlebt, daß in keinster Weise ein Interessse am Anliegen der Eltern hat! Was das Management allerdings gut beherrscht ist , in 1 1/2 Jahren ,dreimal das Schulgeld , mit fadenscheinigen Begründungen, zu erhöhen. Der Focus liegt auf Gewinnmaximierung ! Viel Wert wird auch übrigens auf das äußere Erscheinungsbild der Schule gelegt, daß Management versucht sich stets von der besten Seite zu zeigen, der Schein trügt! Als wir in dieser Schule angefangen haben, gab es einen absoluten Lehrermangel. Mein Kind kam mit wenig Englischkenntnissen in diese Schule, in solch einer Situation hätte ihm anfänglich eine regelmäßige Englischförderung zugestanden, die er aber kaum erhalten hat , ferner kam hinzu daß seine Klassenlehrerin Fehlzeiten von fast 70% in einem Schuljahr aufwies! Jetzt kann sich jeder vorstellen , wie schwer es für ein Kind ist, sich ständig auf wechselnde Vertretungslehrer einzulassen. Auch gab es in diesem Schuljahr kaum eine Kontinuität des Lehre! Das Management hat sich für diese Misere nicht verantwortlich gefühlt! In dieser Schule kommt ihr Kind entweder im Unterricht mit, oder es bleibt auf der Strecke! Gründe für den häufigen Lehrerwechsel an dieser Schule liegen auf der Hand! Ich habe mir ein paar Arbeitgeberbewertungen im Netz wie z.B. glaasdoor.de angeschaut, die aktuellste Bewertung eines aktuellen Mitarbeiters, hat mein schlechtes Bild von dieser Schule bestätigt! Alles spricht für eine ENORME Unzufriedenheit unter den Lehrern! Abschließend möchte ich hier nochmal diesen Mitarbeiter zitieren "There are some great members of stuff sadly they are all looking for jobs elsewhere" "inadaquate teacher development and training. WIFI cannot support teaching equipment. ARROGANT SENIOR MANAGEMENT .New staff orientation pathetic " Der Rat an das Management: " Start listening to your staff. Show , you care about their development " Nachtrag: Es wurde definitiv ein Negativkommentar gelöscht! Wenn Sie präzise recherchiert hätten, wären Sie auf die negative Arbeitgeberbewertung gestoßen! Ihre Antwort zeigt wiedereinmal , daß sich die St.Georges Schule stets ins rechte Licht rücken will. Ihr verfasster, selbstverteidigender Antwortroman, wird meine Ansicht von dieser schlecht geführten Schule nicht ändern! Ich habe genug unergiebige Gespräche mit dem heuchlerichen und verlogenen Leitungspersonal geführt!
