We provide a warm, secure, friendly and stable environment within the Christian context of The School. Boarding at St George’s provides a structured framework within which students will benefit from a first class secondary education and grow up to be the kind of well-rounded and broad-minded young men and women of whom the school, their parents and the community will be proud. Honesty, trust, respect, equality and openness are values ingrained in those who board at St George’s.


The school has excellent road and rail links being situated in between Luton and St Albans, just off the M1, and just 30 minutes away by train from St Pancras International. We are also a short walk from the picturesque town of Harpenden.
