St George first opened its doors on 8th September 1958.as a secondary school for boys and girls in Southampton and the surrounding area. The school was officially opened on Saint George's Day, April 23rd 1959 by John Henry King, Bishop of Portsmouth. By 1961-2 the the number of pupils had risen to over 600 as the school earnt a reputation for excellent standards of education. By the 1970's the decision was made that the school was to become a boys only school which it remained until becoming a mixed school again in 2013.

The original building still forms the hub of St George although extensive refurbishment and the creation of new buildings has benefitted students greatly in recent years. An outstanding feature of the college is the extensive on-site sports fields including an all weather sports pitch.

St George enjoys excelent GCSE results and continues to deliver a high standard of education in the Southampton area. Today as before, students at St George benefit from being part of a small, friendly community where individuals are encouraged to develop their unique talents.
