About St Bees School.
St Bees School has been an integral part of this picturesque coastal village in West Cumbria for many centuries. Founded by Edmund Grindal, Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1583. Parts of the original buildings are still in use, with significant expansion in 1844
Above the door of the famous Quadrangle is the school motto. This can be translated from the Latin as "Enter so that you may make progress".
