History

Nestled in the mountains in central Windhoek, Namibia, you will find St George’s Diocesan School. It was founded on 8 July 1919 and is one of the oldest educational institutions in Namibia. The school opened with 27 pupils and primarily girls and boys up to the age of twelve were allowed to attend. The motto of the school, “Credo ut Intellegam” which means I believe so that I may understand, came into being around 1964.
 
In January 2003, St George’s School’s curriculum was extended to include Grade 8, and this exercise continued every year until the first Grade 12s were in the College in 2007.
 
St George’s School belongs to the Anglican Diocese of Namibia with the Bishop of the Diocese as Visitor and Chairman of the School Council. The Christian faith is taught and upheld in the ethos and life of the school and includes regular visits to the Cathedral.
