St. George's School (Arabic: مدرسة المطران‎‎ Madrasat al-Mutran) is a British boys' school in East Jerusalem run by the Anglican diocese of Jerusalem.

St. George's School is located next to St. George's College, just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The school was established in 1899. The Rev. Wilbert Awdry, author of The Railway Series, taught at the school in 1933-1936.[2] Built in the affluent Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, it served as a place where Jerusalem's Christians and Muslims would send their sons for secondary education.[3]

The school currently runs the regular Tawjihi program and will be running the GCSEs, GCE and IB programs also in the near future.
