WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear visitors, please allow me to extend a welcome to our school, as you explore the website, I am sure you will see a school filled with happy, confident learners and teachers who are pleased to be here.
We are living in an ever increasing global community, our school currently hosts teacher, students and families from over 23 different nationalities, bringing with them a wealth of experiences and cultural knowledge that will enrich our collective community, as well as helping to provide our students with the skills and knowledge to succeed, regardless of where their career choices take them.
At St. George International School & Preschool we offer a hybrid curriculum, ultimately resulting in our students receiving the Bulgarian diplomas, alongside internationally recognised Cambridge International IGCSE & A-Level qualifications at the end of their secondary education. A core academic curriculum including English as a First Language, English Literature, Bulgarian Language and Literature, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Humanities and a Modern Foreign Language provides our students with as many ‘open doors’ as possible for the future. Our primary school embeds the key skills of Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, preparing them for their secondary education, as well as instilling a love for reading and pleasure in learning for learnings sake.
High quality education starts with a high quality learning environment. Our modern facilities are world class. Each classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard, students have access to ICT, our science labs provide the means for students to do science instead of merely learning about it, and we have just opened our brand new sports centre complete with studios, swimming pools, an athletics track, and a large multifunctional gym where students can learn to develop their body as well as their mind. We have also just completed the construction of our library and theatre, and look forward to both becoming a central feature of our student’s day to day education.
In a school it’s often forgotten that students are not the only people who learn, Life Long Learnings is a key aspect for not only students, but our teachers as well. Our staff body consists of both qualified Bulgarian teachers, working alongside qualified international teachers. All staff are monitored, mentored, and expected to undergo continuing professional development. A comprehensive training programme based around meeting core teaching competencies ensures that skills are shared, and students benefit from combined experiences and backgrounds.
Learning should not stop at the end of the school day, a mutually beneficial partnership between the school and parents is vital to ensure the rapid progress of our students. Over the coming year we will expand the scope of our clubs and extra-curricular activities to include not only traditional sporting clubs, but to introduce students to a range of hobbies, sports and interests in order to discover hidden talents, provide a release of energy, harness creativity and contribute to the overall personal development of the students.
For us St. George International School & Preschool is not just a building, but a shared place of shared ideas and shared cause, where teachers, students, and parents want to be. I look forward to welcoming you in the future!
