Who will St Bees suit?

Youngsters who might otherwise be distracted by high city life will find the quiet and gentle countryside, plus the inspiring mix of ancient and modern buildings, an excellent venue for university preparation. Sixth formers are confident, friendly and enthusiastic supporters of their school, which is home to over 300 pupils, 43% of whom are boarders from the UK and 22 other countries. Cricket and other sports facilities, including their own golf course and Golf Academy, are excellent.

ASIS View of St Bees

Set in beautiful local sandstone buildings over 400 years old, St Bees School provides an added-value education for children of all academic abilities, including preparing for Oxbridge, and regularly achieves the status of No.1 school in the English north-west region. It has a coastal location, two hours from Manchester but just ten minutes from some of Britain’s most glorious countryside in the Cumbrian Lake District. St Bees was founded by a former Archbishop of Canterbury who wanted to create an atmosphere of academic diligence, similar to Oxford and Cambridge, whilst embodying the gentle Christian approach to friendship and care.
