Governance and leadership at St. George's
St. George’s British International School is committed to transparent leadership, excellence in teaching and the proactive support of our students.
Our school is certified by the Basque government and regulated by the British Council.
We publish our academic results every year along a list of the universities that accept St. George’s students.
Taking part in charity and community events helps our students to put the school values into practice, strengthening solidarity and empathy. Our students collaborate in different charity initiatives such as the Food Bank, the Spanish Association against Cancer, Domund, Save the Children, Cáritas Diocesana or the Harribide foundation, which develops socio-educational projects with childhood and youth.
Every member of school staff undertakes safeguarding training to identify any personal issues that children might be facing, and to ensure that adults do not pose a risk to them either.
Globeducate Platinum Standard: Continuous improvement
Globeducate has implemented a framework for monitoring and improving quality throughout all its schools, called the Platinum Standard. The system is based upon best educational practices from around the world and helps schools to assess the quality of the teaching they offer. The programme has a set of quality indicators which outline improvement plans in areas such as quality of teaching, effective leadership and student progress and wellbeing.

Every year the students of the second year of Baccalaureate face a crucial moment in their lives. They all have to decide what they will do when they leave school. Making the right decision is something that worries both the families and all the teachers and tutors who have accompanied them during all these years at our school.
In order to educate our pupils and children to live successfully in a globalised world and to achieve educational excellence, knowing a little about neuroscience, psychology and positive discipline is key.
