Vision and Mission
We place equal value on character development and academic achievement, with every child encouraged to explore their own journey through school life and beyond.
A culture of challenge encourages students to broaden their horizons and accomplish remarkable things, with the care and support of staff and peers alike. Trust and respect are offered – and reciprocated – and self-expression, creativity and imagination fostered and valued.
Importantly, the St Bees approach to academic achievement is similarly rigorous. Our goal is to ensure that students realise their true potential across the curriculum. The internationally renowned Fusion Programme forms the basis of the curriculum, enabling pupils to access the best of eastern and western educational philosophies.
The school’s active, inquiry-based learning framework inspires discovery, creativity, originality, curiosity, innovation, enterprise and initiative. St Bees pupils emerge fully prepared for engagement with the international world, with an appreciation of the value of diversity derived from well-developed cultural understandings and a global mind-set. Links with partner Full Circle schools are fully exploited, providing St Bees pupils with enrichments unavailable in most other schools.
