St George's is Rome's original and largest British international school, founded in 1958. Today it is home to 925 pupils from over 90 different countries: a truly global community.

The school's main campus is a historic 14-acre site in the north of the city with extensive facilities: 7 fully- equipped science laboratories, two information technology classrooms, specialist music, art and design technology rooms, and multiple sports amenities, including two multi-purpose astro-turf pitches, an olympic-size running track, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts.

A proudly inclusive school, St George's welcomes new pupils throughout the year, subject to availability, and offers extensive learning support to pupils with additional educational needs, as well as EAL. Pupils follow the UK National Curriculum through to IGCSE. Thereafter, pupils progress to the IBDP, with over 30 separate DP courses offered. Teachers are almost exclusively UK-trained and mother-tongue English speakers.

Emphasis is on academic excellence, with exam results consistently amongst the best in the country and in Europe. The Class of 2022 achieved an average DP score of 37 points, and have accepted places at leading universities including Harvard, Brown and Imperial. Recent graduates have also attended Oxford, Cambridge, Yale and MIT. For prospective families, virtual and in-person visits are available throughout the school year.
