I am delighted to welcome you to the official website of St George’s New Town Junior School. Located in Colchester, we aspire for children to be the best they can be, achieving well to help them make their dreams a reality. Children are nurtured to be caring, confident, hard-working and resilient, enabling them to grow, mature and make a positive contribution.

I hope you find this site informative, but would encourage you to contact us if there is anything further you would like to know.

...Recent News... 

School Meals currently cost just £2.00 per day. Please be aware that this will rise to £2.20 per day from September 2018. Please be aware, owing to increased charges being made to the school by our supplier (St James' School) the price may need to be raised further during the year.

Swimming is taught in Year 5. Please be aware that, from September 2018, a financial contribution will be requested for each lesson.

Educational Visits are organised every year for the children in the school. Please be aware that, from April 2018, we may need to request a financial contribution for a visit that is a fair proportion of the total cost involved. We may no longer be able to cap requested contributions at £5.00 per child.
