The Trustees of St Bees School met on Monday 25th July 2016 to review the viability of resurrecting education on the St Bees’ site, in alignment with Archbishop Grindal’s original vision. The aim of the review was to consider realistic and sustainable options for the future, and was conducted after receiving expressions of interest in response to the Times Educational Supplement advertisement, and following the results of a detailed due diligence on the finances of the school.
The Trustees now believe that the development of a viable, sustainable school is possible and they have committed the necessary funding to further explore the options identified. READ MORE HERE.
