A Cumbrian school is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that could be worth more than £30,000 per student during their sixth form journey.
Independent school, St Bees, which experienced a rapid growth rate in September and is now complete with an international sixth form provision, has secured funding to offer current year 11 students the opportunity to study at the school on a fully-funded scholarship of up to 100 per cent of the cost.
St Bees School prides itself on its small class sizes – an intentional and integral part of their philosophy, allowing for more dynamic, tutorial-focused teaching styles.
Sixth form classes contain about five students per subject, mirroring the Oxbridge method of teaching tutorials and supervisions.
St Bees hopes to work alongside local secondary schools to provide a post-16 provision that suits students who might benefit from a more individualised style of teaching.
The students would study AS and A levels, choosing from Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Art, Economics and Geography, in addition to the IPQ – the International Project Qualification.
They will also have PE lessons and take part in the school’s unique and character development focused “Global Awareness Programme.” Other Humanities subjects are also available in support.
“St Bees is dedicated to ensuring our students exceed beyond all capabilities,” said headmaster Roger Sinnett.
“The international dynamic we have this year in the sixth form is truly an inspired place of learning. Students learn as much from each other as they do in their lessons – and this is what will set them apart in life.”
Interested students have until April 30 to indicate their interest.
