With 430 years of British educational tradition and heritage, St Bees is modern and international offering an East-meets-West education. It promotes a balanced development of IQ and EQ, prepares students for a global future, and has a unique personal tutor system to bring out the best in students.

  • How will a fusion of West and East improve my child’s learning?


    The fusion programme forms the basis of the curriculum, integrating the best parts of the English National Curriculum and the Chinese National Curriculum.  A-Level programmes are based on the English-language, but how we teach and how students learn owes much to the rigor and approach of the Chinese system.


  • How does character development benefit my child?


    Character development leads to students who are more mature, and it is this maturity of character which is the engine which drives academic attainment. This is a component ignored by most schools. At St Bees this is tied into every lesson in every subject area and is also promoted through weekly Global Awareness Programme (GAP) lessons.

  • How does St Bees prepare my child for a global tomorrow?

    Students are prepared for the international world, with a celebration of diversity which derives from well-developed cultural understandings and a global mind-set. The school prepares students for tomorrow’s world, having defined the projected needs of society in the future and the skills, competencies, abilities, and attitudes required to meet those needs.


  • How does the ancient heritage of SBUK influence how my child learns at SBDG/SBSJZ?


    Through the centuries, St Bees has always had a high reputation for developing all-round competencies in its students, and St Bees’ vision of balancing academic attainment with character development aligns seamlessly with this mission. As the number of St Bees schools worldwide grows,  St Bees School UK also functions as the ‘mothership, operating at the heart of our project to integrate school systems from the UK and China and thereby providing a bridge between West and East.


  • What benefits does individual mentoring bring?


    Everything we do at St Bees is student focused. As soon as a student walks through the door on their first day, we start our progress-tracking programme. Regular one-to-one discussions with their Tutor helps students to set achievable learning targets which are continuously monitored.  We want our students to succeed and to excel. To be academically successful, to have highly developed and desirable personality and character attributes.   Our mentoring system is a powerful tool for maximizing a student’s potential.


  • What are the qualities of the school which will make my child academically successful?



    St Bees schools are committed to providing a rounded education to our students, encompassing both academic and holistic dimensions. For our students, academic success develops hand-in-glove with their interpersonal and communication skills, and their ability to think and act creatively and independently – taking responsibility for their learning within the frameworks we provide.  Our mentoring programme monitors every student’s progress, guiding them to set themselves increasingly demanding targets.  Through our team of experienced international educators, our teaching approach challenges students to explore and discover.  In reality, we give a student wings to fly and to achieve their potential.


  • How does St Bees prepare students for an international future?


    At St Bees, our twin campus approach is revolutionary. Students will be given the opportunity and encouraged to spend time in St Bees China or the UK. A true global exchange – and something that will prepare all St Bees students for that global world.

  • Teamwork: Why is teamwork important? Don’t they get this just by playing football?


    At St Bees we believe that teamwork promotes an atmosphere that fosters friendship and loyalty. These close-knit relationships motivate students in parallel and align them to work harder, cooperate and be supportive of one another. Individuals possess diverse talents, weaknesses, communication skills, strengths, and habits that can all be learnt from working as a team.


  • Leadership: Why spend time developing leadership competencies? What benefits does this bring?


    St Bees students will inherit a vastly different world when they emerge from school and enter university and the world of work. Leaders have great discipline and they want to inspire others to follow the same path. Being a good leader requires critical thinking, empathy, listening skills and knowing how to harness the competencies of others.  Such skills and qualities are important and at St Bees we understand that our future and success depend on how we lead our personal and professional lives.


  • Independence: What are the qualities developed here?


    From learning how to be independent a St Bees student will become a self-reliant, determined, knowledgeable, confident, reliable, decisive, well informed, self-disciplined, and responsible adult.  University demands independent study skills and at St Bees we prepare our students for this world.


  • Personal organization: how does this benefit a child’s study?


    As a St Bees student, you will have a full schedule with numerous subjects to keep you on your toes. Organization of your study environment, materials, when to study and even setting up a support study network with your classmates and teachers is essential to be an efficient student. Strong personal organization helps you manage time and, in the long run, will be a skill you can take forward into your adult life.


    圣比斯学生将有丰富的日程安排,其中涉及很多科目,学生必须学会适应这样的节奏。学生要布置自己的学习环境,准备学习材料,管理学习时间,甚至要与同学和老师建立起互相支持的学习关系。 拥有强大的个人组织能力的人能更有效地管理时间,长远来看,这将是孩子日后必须拥有的一项重要技能。
  • Creativity: Is this just Art?


    At St Bees we understand that being creative helps you become a better problem solver in all areas of your life and work. Creativity helps you see things differently and better deal with uncertainty. Studies show that creative people are better able to live with uncertainty because they can adapt their thinking to allow for the flow of the unknown.


  • Confidence: My child is shy. Why is this important?


    Confidence can help you to take on the world with more energy and determination, resulting in better relationships, quality work and a feeling of being connected with your surroundings. Self-confident people usually can influence others more easily, as well as control their own emotions and behaviours more responsibly.


  • Public speaking: How does this help my child get good grades?


    Public speaking is important because it helps you to improve your knowledge. The preparation that goes into a speech and the fact that you must work out how to communicate to others effectively makes you understand your content that much better.  Students learn how to create a logical argument and present it verbally to an audience. 


  • Critical thinking: What does this actually mean?


    The skills that we need in order to be able to think critically are varied and include observation, analysis, interpretation, reflection, evaluation, inference, explanation, problem solving, and decision making.

    By using critical thinking in school, we improve problem solving abilities and our decision making by excluding guess work. Our organizational ability improves and saves time. Critical thinking teaches how to prioritize time and resources allowing you to only analyse what is needed.


  • Communication: Is this just speaking English?


    Good verbal and written communication skills are essential in order to deliver and understand information quickly and accurately. Being able to communicate effectively in any language is a vital life skill and should not be overlooked. At St Bees we believe that to communicate well is to understand and be understood.


  • Research skills: All information is contained in the textbooks, right? Why do students need to research?


    Research is the process of solving problems and finding facts in an organised way. Research is done by applying what is known and building on it. Additional knowledge can be discovered by proving existing theories, and by trying to better explain observations.
