Three decades ago Marietta Horton founded the first of currently four St. George’s schools in Cologne. St. George’s began in 1985 with 16 children and now has over 800 children enrolled in Cologne and another 1,000+ children at sister schools in Duisburg-Duesseldorf and Munich. The schools are proud of their high academic standards, the diverse cultural spectrum with over 45 different nationalities. “Pupils really enjoy coming to school.” One of the key factors in creating St. George’s many years ago, was to establish an environment for children which is motivating, warm and friendly orientated.
