Set up under the aegis of St. George’s Education Society and being built in the memory of Late Shri Paul M George, former Executive Director (and son of Shri M.G.

Located at Alaknanda in South Delhi over a 4.1 acre plot, the ‘Paul George Global School’ is being built by the internationally renowned architects Arcop Associates Private Limited (founded in Canada) and is presently in an advanced stage of construction. With St. George’s School, in its close vicinity, the PGGS is projected to be built as a centre of academic and extracurricular excellence. Realizing the need for contemporary education with a global perspective, PGGS aims at being a platform for quality education, and at nurturing professional development among its students, such that they become vibrant lifelong learners, independent thinkers and responsible citizens of the country.
The first impression of the school under construction is of it being modern, contemporary and trendy. Optimally utilizing available space, the architecture is eye catching and utilitarian. With four attractive pillars standing majestically at the entrance to the school epitomizing the four character qualities of Late Shri Paul M George viz., Courage, Compassion, Equality and Integrity, the ambience is at once serene and captivating.
PGGS will have world-class infrastructure and a Wi-Fi enabled campus that will be inspiring, eco- friendly and will give the students, including the differently abled an ideal environment for holistic learning. The school will also have an impressive array of academic and sporting facilities. The front part of the school will have an attractive sculptural form that will house the auditorium. It will also have a multipurpose facility of an indoor Basketball, Badminton and Table Tennis court with a provision for automated retractable seating and stage to host cultural programs, gatherings and stage performances. The front block on stilts will have the provision of an automatic temperature controlled, shaded all weather swimming pool underneath and an 8-lane, 100 metres synthetic track running through the building. A skating rink along with a ‘Wimbledon type’ tennis court is also being constructed on the roof of the school building thereby, optimally utilizing available space. Interestingly this fully air conditioned building is being built to be totally barrier free. Moreover, the imaginatively constructed double basements will provide ample car parking space for the entire faculty of the school.
