St. George's International School in Switzerland was founded in 1927 by two young graduates of Oxford University, Lorna Southwell and Osyth Potts. In their undergraduate days at St. Hugh's College, after the horrors of the First World War, they conceived the idea of founding a school in which children of all nationalities could share their learning and the difficulties of growing up.

Southwell and Potts hoped that the students with this experience behind them would as adults understand others better and thus contribute to the promotion of peace in the world. The school is known, however, for its devoted faculty and staff, who take their responsibilities very seriously. Students benefit from the rigour demanded.
