Open Day Update
On Saturday 24th November we held our first Open Day since officially opening. It was a pleasure to see many people come to the School to discover more about what we are doing.
Our visitors got to try their hand in a science experiment in the chemistry lab as well as a swift lesson in Mandarin Chinese with Amy Zhang. A first for most of us, I think!
This was a great opportunity to drop in, have a tour and ask any questions about our unique curriculum and future plans. Gareth Seddon, the Headmaster, spoke about how far we have come and the plans for where we are going. Members of teaching and support staff were on hand to answer questions alongside our current pupils and their parents.
We would like to thank all who attended, including Trudy Harrison MP and Mayor of Copeland Mike Starkie for their continuous support – we look forward to welcoming you back again.
Our philosophy here at St Bees School is “every day is an Open Day” so if you could not make it, want to come back, or want to visit us for the first time, call us on 01946 828000 and we can arrange a tour and a chat with the Headmaster and team at your convenience.
