An update from the Headmaster
Since the announcement in March 2017 of the re-opening of St Bees as a joint venture between St Bees Trustees and Full Circle Education group, all parties have been working hard to re-establish the school once again as a vibrant education offering to families from West Cumbria and beyond.
The Board has recently made the decision to open in September 2018 initially with a cohort of Year 7 pupils. We have come to recognise the importance of nurturing the culture of the school from the ground up and it has been clear that the local and international markets point toward incremental growth from that fundamental starting point. Strong social dynamics and interaction are crucial to high quality education and we believe this is the best educational model both for those pupils who will join us in the first year and also for the School. This will allow expansion and organic growth year on year and will enable the culture to be developed and established from the ground up. Group sizes will remain small to ensure unrivalled care for the individual and the emphasis will remain on providing a high quality all round education and character development. St Bees School will therefore initially operate as a day school until the boarding community is established in the coming years.
We are enormously grateful all those families who have supported St Bees and we very much look forward to welcoming the Year 7 intake later this year. We continue to welcome new enquiries for Year 7 entry for a September 2018 start and if you would like to find out more please do contact the Admissions Team on 01946 828002 or firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion.
With very best wishes
