Welcome to the St George’s (Grow) Giving Trees and the opportunity to purchase a Leaf for Life. These pages are designed to answer questions you may have regarding the Giving Tree, Leaf for Life and your order.
What are the St George’s Giving Trees & Leaf for Life?
- To celebrate our wonderful school, we have commissioned two beautiful bespoke tree sculptures, one for the College and one for the Junior School which will be visible for all to admire
- To recognise your support, you can add a personalised inscription to a leaf which will be placed on one of our St George’s Giving Trees and leave a lasting legacy
- The elegant sculptures will have pride of place on our campuses at both the College and Junior School and are designed to celebrate the members of our Georgian family who have helped and will continue to do so in making it the unique and exciting place it is today
Any image of the proposed design on the website is a representation only.
Why are they being created?
- The ability to leave a lasting legacy at St George’s with the opportunity to come back and visit your school at any time and still visibly be ‘Always Georgian’, whilst also allowing you to leave a lasting legacy
Who can buy Leaves?
- The Giving Trees are available to all members of the Georgian Family. We welcome support be it local or from around the world. Each member of our Georgian Family is as important to us as the next and we encourage everyone to be a part of this initiative

What can I buy?
- You can choose a 3D silver leaf
- You can only buy leaves for The St George’s Giving Trees on this website. Please see http://www.stgeorgesgrow.com/ for full details and prices
- Unfortunately we are unable to provide accents (acute or grave) over lettering due to the type of English language set in the photobonded process employed.
How much can I say on my inscription?
- You can have up to three lines with 16 characters per line on the leaf, spaces and punctuation count as characters. You can use upper and lower case letters. Any images shown on the website are for illustration purposes only and may not be representative of the actual layout.
Are the letters painted on top?
- No, the letters are actually photobonded into the leaf using the same process used for lettering on shipping vessels and, therefore, very hardwearing.
What can I have inscribed on my Leaf?
The choices of inscription are:
- Name & Surname with Years from and to e.g. John Smith 2004 – 2018
- Family name e.g. ‘Smith Family’ with or without year representation
