Pupil Leadership

At St. George's, our vision statement says:

Be brave.  Be great.  Be you.

To fulfil this call to action and culture statement for our pupils, it is incredibly important that the children of St. George's have a voice. 

To 'Be great', requires great leadership.  Step forward, St. George's pupil leadership team.
