Boarding as an International Pupil

We are extremely proud of our diverse community. Whilst two-thirds of our boarders at St George’s are British, we have a wonderful mix of girls from different countries, who bring fresh ideas, cultural thinking and experience to the school.

The world is a global place of learning, full of opportunities. Our international pupils develop broader perspectives from each other and, of course, a wonderful international network of friends. They also share so much with girls, domicile in the UK. The #SGAconnected community

Accessing a brilliant UK education, which enables a pathway to many wonderful post-18 opportunities, which include Russell Group university entrance; the sharing of cultural ideas; and wide opportunities to study and work abroad, there is a huge advantage to accessing a culturally diverse living and learing community for senior school. Girls enjoy the benefits from their friends and family who remain in their home nation, having friends who are based in the UK, as well as the wider St George's network. This is a winning formula, proving extremely useful for many of our girls in their working and social lives.

Visa Requirements

All our international students must, by law, have a UK guardian. Guardians can be friends or relatives in the UK or parents can employ a guardianship agency. AEGIS is the accredited body for guardians in the UK and we are a Member School.

St George’s sponsors pupils through their secondary education on a Child Student Visa or Student Visa (16+).

To ensure the best possible service and advice to parents, St George's immigration work is outsourced to Newland Chase Education who are a specialist immigration law firm. They will manage the visa application process on behalf of St George's and your daughter, and any subsequent renewals as she progresses through the school. Newland Chase Education will complete all the forms ensuring full compliance with UKVI regulations, ensuring the chance of a successful application is maximised. The school will require you to use the services of Newland Chase Education in any visa application and will not accept any third party arrangement.

There will be a one off administration charge for this service of £795 which you should pay on acceptance of your daughter’s place, together with the acceptance deposit.
