St George's is Rome's largest and highest achieving international school, home to 930 pupils from nearly 100 different countries. It is the original British international school in Rome. The founding values of St George's are internationalism, inclusivity, and excellence.

The school's main campus is a leafy, historic site in the city's north, with seven fully-equipped science laboratories, a drama studio, specialist music, art and design technology rooms, and multiple sports amenities including two multi-purpose astro-turf pitches, an olympic-size running track, tennis, netball, basketball and volleyball courts. Alongside its academic programme, pupils enjoy a plethora of co-curricular activities, from coding and robotics to jazz ensemble and forest school.

With a proudly inclusive admissions policy, St George's welcomes new pupils throughout the year, subject to availability, and offers extensive support to pupils with additional educational or English language needs. Pupils follow an enhanced version of the UK National Curriculum through to IGCSE; thereafter, they progress to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), with over 30 separate DP courses offered. Teachers are almost exclusively UK-trained and mother-tongue English speakers.

Emphasis is on encouraging pupils to strive to fulfil their academic potential, and examination results are consistently amongst the best in Europe. The Class of 2023 achieved an average DP score of 35 points, and have accepted places at leading universities including Cambridge, Yale and Berkeley. Recent graduates have also attended Oxford, Harvard and MIT.

For prospective families, virtual and in-person visits are available throughout the school year. St George's pupils can be described as open-hearted and with an enormous curiosity for their learning. With such a diverse community and a wide range of activities, new members of the community can be assured of a warm welcome.
