The education at St Bees reflects our partnership with the Full Circle Education Group, based in Shenzhen in the south of China. Full Circle comprises a growing number of schools which share the same educational philosophy. With experience of running one of the longest-established private schools in China with 4,000 pupils, Full Circle partners with different institutions with similar values to develop schools worldwide.
Full Circle’s vision embraces Fusion – integrating the best of Eastern and Western approaches to education. The expertise they have in school management provides partners with different perspectives of support, such as strategic development planning, school leadership, curriculum leadership, pastoral systems, operations management, as well as financial investment. The team of experts from multinational backgrounds seek to enrich education management with the wisdom of both worlds.
Full Circle believes in the power of integration, where a sense of common purpose provides the bridges between East and West and where we can, in understanding and humility, provide our children with an education which transcends national boundaries whilst preserving cultural integrity.
Full Circle schools are committed to providing a rounded education to our students, encompassing both academic and holistic dimensions. For our students, academic success develops hand-in-glove with their interpersonal and communication skills, and their ability to think and act creatively and independently – taking responsibility for their learning within the frameworks we provide.
The School’s active, enquiry-based learning framework inspires discovery, creativity, originality, curiosity, innovation, enterprise and initiative.
Fusion pupils strive to develop the maturity to take responsibility for their own actions and behaviour.
The School tracks pupil progress in both academic and character development dimensions, and negotiated targets form the basis for progress
Every pupil has a Pastoral Tutor and they meet frequently to discuss progress and solve any problems – academic or social.
