  • Date of Birth of Child
What will you receive if you complete this form
  • When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
  • We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
  • Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
  • Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
  • The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
  • If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
  • We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning. 
  • We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

  • Key Information
    St Bees has a total of 100 students, 38 of whom are international. 51 of these students are Boarders, spanning from over 14 different countries and ranging from the ages of 11 to 18.

    St Bees is unique in many ways. We are a small school who specialises on the individual – enabling each and every student to become the person they know they can be. To allow them to reach their dreams through a holistic, global and supportive education.

    EAL lessons are taught as part of our Pre-A Level course (15-16 year olds) – a one-year IGCSE course intended for international students, as a precursor to A Levels.

    However, outside of this year group – all non-native English speakers are tested upon arrival, in accordance with the Bell Foundation EAL Assessment Framework. Each student is then assigned a ‘traffic light’ colour, indicating their English ability. Individual ‘passports’ are created for each student, in a bespoke manner, highlighting the support required by their subject teachers. Dependent on their level, students might have additional EAL classes, regardless of their year group and age, to enhance and support their EAL learning; which then fits seamlessly in to their daily timetable.

    St Bees is a place that must be seen to be believed. That achieves phenomenal academic results and overwhelming student satisfaction – in a beautiful and safe part of the UK.

    Nearest international airport: 2.5 – 3 hours: Manchester Airport. Pick ups available, organised by St Bees School.
