Opening September 2018 for Year 7 - Register your interest in school placesAdmissions
Tucked away in the beautiful village of St Bees in Cumbria, you will find our historic and world renowned school. Everyone who visits St Bees finds that they feel an immediate sense of belonging and that they are inspired by the incredible landscape, wondrous coastal location and the heritage of our unique campus. It is a beautiful place to live and work that can only bring the best out of children and staff alike.
St Bees School is a school for the whole family. We begin by establishing a complete understanding of the needs of every child. We know that their success in education is underpinned by strong and supportive relationships between home and school. Parents are encouraged to be active and involved partners in the education of their children and we take extra care to ensure that the programme for your child is tailored to his or her needs.
St Bees School is a place of peace, respect and high academic aspiration. The exceptional curriculum and innovative activities programme ensure that your child will have the opportunity to nurture their existing interests and to find new ones.
Children today are preparing for a world of work which will be fast moving, technologically advanced and one in which transactions span the globe every day. My belief is that they must enter that world with a wide range of interests, a strong work ethic, a global network of friendships and a sense of adventure.
Progress is the most powerful catalyst for achievement and your child’s Personal Tutor will ensure that they develop the best possible understanding of how to keep moving forward toward the achievement of ambitious targets in their time as a St Beghian.
When our illustrious Old Boy, Rowan Atkinson, visited St Bees in 2015, his message to the gathered pupils for their future life was to follow their passion. In just three words, he captured our ambition for your children in these exciting times.
I hope that you will take the time to come and visit us. A warm welcome awaits.
