Sports at St. George's

Sport is a key element in the daily lives of all students who attend St. George's. Through both the Physical Education curriculum and extra-curricular sports clubs, students will develop a sense of togetherness which is carried across all aspects of school life. All students are encouraged to discover their personal interests through a wide variety of sports and activities on offer, with many opting to represent the school in the competitive sports teams. Unique to St. George's is the winter Physical Education curriculum between January and March, where all students learn how to ski or snowboard at different resorts across Switzerland.

IGCSE Physical Education

At St George’s we believe that teaching our students about how to live a health and active lifestyle is very important. For that reason we have chosen to offer the IGCSE PE program in Years 10 and 11. The syllabus provides learners with an opportunity to study both the practical and theoretical aspects of physical education. It is designed to encourage enjoyment in physical activity by providing learners with an opportunity to take part in a range of physical activities and develop an understanding of effective and safe physical performance. This helps learners to develop an appreciation of the necessity for sound understanding of the principles, practices and training that underpin improved performance, better health and well-being. The physical component and the academic component each make up 50% of the overall mark.

Sport Études

Passion and commitment

Sports at St. George’s plays a key element in the daily lives of all students. We recognise and support the commitment required from students in practising high level sports. Sport Études is a bespoke programme for students who demonstrate passion and commitment to a sporting activity. It provides a balanced structure between the development of particular talents and academic life.

The objective of our new Sport Études project is to accommodate our elite sports students, those who have shown interest, commitment and talents in their favourite sports outside school by offering them an adapted academic programme. This programme allows them to maintain robust academic standards but also offers time zones when students can concentrate on their sport on and off the school premises.
