St Bees School
St Bees School provides the opportunity for pupils to receive an outstanding all-round academic and character education whilst at the same time forming lifelong friendships. Founded in 1583 by Edmund Grindal, then Archbishop of Canterbury, St Bees School has been an integral part of this picturesque coastal village in Cumbria for many centuries.
Parts of the original buildings are still in use, following significant expansion in 1844. Above the door of the famous Quadrangle is inscribed the Latin school motto Ingredere ut Proficias: Enter so that you may make progress.
The School has a rich and proud history as an independent school and has opened its doors to pupils once again. Initially opening as a day school with a Year 7 intake, the school will expand to provide education for years 7, 8, 9 and 12 in 2019, therefore providing continuous education on the same campus for boys and girls aged 11-18. Boarding provision will be available in the coming years.
