St. George's College - Senior
Williams Amaya Pelaez
Head of Senior School
The Senior School caters for pupils from ages 10 to 17 from Grades 5 to 11. It is divided into two sections, the Middle School made up of Grades 5 to 9 and the Upper School made up of Grades 10 and 11.
The emphasis in the Senior School is on providing a quality education which prepares all students for entrance to, and success at, university, whether it be in Peru, the UK, USA or another country abroad. Students who transfer out of the school are well-prepared for other systems of schooling, having been taught how to work independently, think creatively for themselves, make responsible decisions and to use information effectively in unfamiliar situations.
The Curriculum is based on international programmes: Fieldwork Education (IPC and IMYC) IB Diploma, Cambridge Assessment of English (PET, FCE and CAE), Alliance Francaise DELF Prim and DELF Junior Examinations and the Peruvian National Curriculum.
STUDY TRIPS & FIELDTRIPS
A number of study Trips and fieldtrips are held each year to support the Senior School educational programme.
Study Trips are usually interdisciplinary and are organised by various Departments to provide cross-curricular links and a holistic experiential approach for all students.
The Senior School is organised into a system of four houses named after mythological creatures, Pegasus, Minotaur, Phoenix and Griffin.
The House system provides a system through which social, sporting and artistic cultural and environmental events, including competitions, are organised. Each House is led by a Head of House appointed from among the teaching staff. Captains and Vice-Captains, elected from among the student body, are responsible for assisting the Head of House in the organisation of House activities and competitions.
