What the school says...

Welcome to St George’s (Hanover Square). We are the only state school in Mayfair. My name is Judith Standing and I am very proud to be the headteacher of this school. St George’s is a school rich in tradition but also looking towards the future. We have an exciting curriculum that enables pupils to develop real life skills through ‘project based learning’. Although we are a church school with very strong links with both St George’s Church and the Grosvenor Chapel, we are inclusive for all pupils and therefore educate children who are of Christian faith, no faith or of other faiths.

St George’s is set in the heart of Mayfair, near Berkley Square and Mount Street Gardens. As the only state school in Mayfair, our pupils come from a range of backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures and we celebrate this throughout the year. Teaching and support staff also represent the diversity that London holds. Being in central London allows us wonderful opportunities and through many partnerships our pupils are exposed to amazing opportunities, such as horse riding in Hyde Park and visiting Michelin Star Restaurants. Please contact us as we would love to welcome you to St George’s.

What the parents say...

St George's Hanover Square is a wonderful co-ed, supportive and inclusive school. Being the only state school in Mayfair, it has children from a wonderful variety of backgrounds. I couldn't be happier as a parent and it is lovely to see my child thrive in such an environment.

This is an absolute gem of a school. The only State primary in Mayfair. My boys are very happy here. The Head teacher and class teachers are really lovely and approachable; the curriculum adopts a project based teaching and learning and is enriched with many out of school learning opportunities funded by the amazing Friends of St George's Charity. There are strong links to both the parish Church of St George, Hanover Square and The Grosvenor Chapel. Parents are very supportive of each other and children look out for each other whatever form they are in. It has some great traditions like speech day and prize giving; singing carols at local hotels and they definitely stand out in their distinctive red blazers hats and caps! As a parent I thoroughly recommend this school!
