Wishing you all a very warm welcome to St Bees School.
An introduction by St Bees School headmaster, Mr. Roger Sinnett.
At St Bees School, we are constantly striving to identify the needs of tomorrow’s world, and prepare our students, from ages 11-18, to meet these challenges with confidence. What skills and competencies will our students require for the world of 2032? Most of the jobs they will be doing have not yet been invented. At St Bees, we give them the skills to not only achieve, but to excel.
St Bees is “where West meets East”. China is a rising star in the economic firmament and an enterprise super-power. Our twin-campus approach between St Bees UK and St Bees China aims to develop a free-flow of students between the two campuses, united through their shared curriculum. All of our UK students learn Mandarin Chinese as a first foreign language and their bilingual competence will place them head and shoulders above other students in their future university applications and job interviews. We recognise that China’s advanced approach to the teaching of mathematics makes them world leaders in this regard, and in partnership with Durham University’s School of Education – No1 in the UK – we offer a ‘fusion’ maths curriculum which expresses every St Bees student’s competence in this subject.
Here at St Bees we recognise that character is key and this means that our students develop academic attainment in tandem with character attributes. St Bees students will develop into confident, caring, creative, independent young people. They will harness a global mind-set and they will walk away with competencies necessary to seize the opportunities that the future holds.
All in all, an advanced education awaits. Please visit us and find out for yourself what lies on the other side of the educational horizon.
