Parent Feedback


  • The first term has changed my child in such a positive way and I am convinced that the school is well prepared for its future path.

    St Bees has not only changed my child but has also had a positive impact on our family life. We feel that the St Bees team are part of our new family.

  • St Bees is a boarding school that I would like to recommend to others. In conversations with other parents, I have noticed that the things I take for granted at St Bees are less common at other schools.

  • I had some expectations of St Bees in terms of the positive impact the school would have on our child. However, no one expected that there would be such a big change after the first term.

    Our expectations have been far exceeded! Of course, there are still a few things that need to be addressed so that my child will be well prepared for the rest of schooling.

  • I love what these kids get up to at the weekend!

    St Bees life could just be the best life for these youngsters.
