St George's School, Ascot - English Summer School

Founded in 1877, one of its early pupils was Britain’s famous wartime Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. It overlooks 12 hectares of fields and woods with stunning views across the rolling Berkshire hills.


St George's School, Ascot is compact, safe and ideal for 8-16 year olds. 

A great location
Ascot town centre is 5 minutes’ walk. Windsor Castle - home of the Royal Family - is 10km away. Historic Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, is nearby on the banks of the River Thames. Fast and frequent trains take you into Central London (40km). Heathrow (17km) is a half-hour coach ride.

Spoilt for choice
Though the campus is safe and compact, it features every facility that you could possibly want. There’s a brand new languages and library centre equipped with multimedia and study areas. Alongside the state-of-the-art 350 seat theatre, there are separate drama, dance and art studios. On the sports front, you’ll find a large sports hall, squash courts, extensive playing fields, eight tennis courts and a brand new indoor swimming pool. There is also the Cookery School kitchen where you can learn to bake cakes. 

Voted best school food
St George’s recently won Tatler Magazine’s award for Independent Schools (UK) best school food. Meals were described as “spectacular” and “a real highlight of the school day!”.
