Silcoates School, situated on the edge of the village and set in 50 acres of grounds, provides an all-through, fully co-educational experience for boys and girls from 3-18.
Scholarships and bursaries are available, which may make access to private education more affordable than might at first be thought. Details are available on the website about how the system works and who might be eligible for reduced fees.
The School has a very good academic record and 95% all of the Sixth Form leavers go on to a university degree course.
Silcoates is a happy and successful school where pupils are taught in small classes and the pastoral care is outstanding. The facilities for learning and for extra-curricular activities are first class, with well-equipped classrooms, laboratories and workshops, as well as extensive playing fields, a swimming pool, sports hall, an all-weather pitch and a multi-use games area.
The School has a flourishing cultural life, with extensive opportunities for the children to take part in music, drama and art.
There is a thriving outdoor education programme, with many pupils participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
The School raises a lot of money for charity and it has well-established systems for peer mentoring and other opportunities for older pupils to help younger ones. There are regular trips and visits, both at home and abroad.
Open Days take place in October and March, but prospective parents and pupils are welcome to visit at any time. Please phone the school and ask to speak to the Admissions Office. Alternatively, the website is always up to date with news stories and further details about the School.
