Thank you for visiting.
St. George’s Church of England Infant School, formerly known as Amersham Common Primary School, was originally opened in Raans Road in 1873. In 1901 the school moved to the current site and in the 1940’s became established as St. George’s Church of England School in conjunction with St. George’s Church.
The school has recently been extended and the buildings, with their variations in architectural style, provide an excellent basis for history study and comparison. We are fortunate in having a well-equipped hall for PE, music, drama, and assemblies and after-school clubs, as well as a separate dining hall, an ICT suite and well-stocked library and reading areas. Our grounds, comprising of two large, secluded fields and a wooded area hidden away behind the school, are extensive and provide the children with ideal opportunities, play activities and environmental study.
A CHURCH SCHOOL
St. George’s is a Church school and our mission statement reads as follows:-
‘Each and every child is special, and we always do our best academically, socially and spiritually for each and every one’
St. George’s Church of England Infant School is in the Diocese of Oxford. Church schools encourage the sense of being part of a large family, which can often be a reminder of the purpose of their Church foundations. They were always intended to serve local communities, not just Christian families within them. The aim of the governors and staff of St. George’s is that anyone directly associated with the school will be able to feel a full, valued member of this community.
The school benefits from the support services of the Buckinghamshire Local Education Authority. In addition, being a Church of England school, it receives support and advice from the Diocesan Board of Education. The school’s own Governing Body provides the school with very effective support.
