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.

Commented on 3rd Oct 2017

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!

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
