This richly illustrated portrait tells the fascinating 140 year old story of St George's from when it was originally founded in Croydon in 1869 as the very first Josephite school outside Belgium. The origins of the School were bound up with the Catholic renaissance movement in England. Within a few years St George's had outgrown its original Croydon location and in 1884 moved to the spacious grounds of Woburn Park near Weybridge, which has been its home ever since.
Laced with a mix of personal memories and stories The Family Album captures these many changing phases of St George's and brings the reader right up to date with what is today a very flourishing co-educational school, which continues to have a strong family ethos and is a truly spiritual oasis in a secular world.
