Veterans look to the future

Age and beauty:  St Bees School, in the foreground, is on the edge of the village with fine views across to the  west Cumbrian coastline. It enjoys   a stunning setting and successful academic results

ST BEES School, founded in 1583, is not only one of the oldest independent schools in the North, but also one of the most successful.

It enjoys an outstanding setting in a picturesque valley on the western edge of the Lake District and has a long and successful tradition of co-education, welcoming boys and girls aged 11 to 18 years old.

Day, weekly, full and flexible boarding options allow the individual to choose a style of schooling that best meets their requirements.

Excellent academic results and the highest possible standards of artistic, musical, dramatic and sporting activities make the school the success it is today.

Retaining the best traditional values while recognising the demands of the 21st century ensures that St Bees School will continue to deliver a first-class education.

The school prides itself on maintaining a family atmosphere in which every pupil is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.

This is achieved through a combination of committed and dedicated staff, small class sizes and excellent pastoral care.

The unique environment of this very special community is best experienced by a personal visit.

Families are invited to spend some time in the school and any potential boarding pupils can stay overnight in one of the boarding houses.

Meanwhile, Casterton School, founded in 1823, is a girls’ school situated in the beautiful Lune Valley, on the boarders of Cumbria, North Yorkshire and Lancashire. It is a major academic player in the UK.

The depth of Casterton’s academic profile can be seen in the school’s regular presence at the top of the national league tables and also in terms of its impressive individual subject marks.

A key factor in Casterton’s continuing success is the intellectual ambition of the girls, positive, supportive peer pressure and the first class teaching.

The school is also strongly committed to providing a breadth of opportunities to all girls throughout the 11-18 years age range, including sport, music and drama.

Boarding life is full and fun with a strong commitment to weekend activities.

Day-girls often choose to stay for weekends to enjoy life with their friends.

Girls are expected to aim high and enjoy their education and achievements as a basis for confidence, innovation and a ‘can-do’ philosophy, together with solid friendships which will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
