History of St Bees School UK:

Throughout its 436 years as an independent boarding and day school, St Bees UK was equally proud of its students’ academic success and personal development. The School has always maintained an excellent academic record as well as nurturing many talented musicians and sports men and women. Being situated in such a wonderful location on the western edge of t he Lake District National Park, St Bees School has offered students the very best environment for a full and varied extra-curricular programme. As part of the Full Circle Education Group, the newly-renovated St Bees UK has been reborn with a mission to create a unique twin campus concept, where there is a free-flow of students in both directions between the UK and China, enabling their students to derive the best of both worlds through a ‘Fusion’ curriculum. St Bees, Dongguan and St Bees UK share a similar fusion curriculum which enables students to spend time in both schools as from year 11.


St Bees, Dongguan:

SBDG caters for students of all nationalities, but it is realistic to assume that 95% of students will be Chinese. In September 2020 SBDG will open its doors to students in Years 11 and 12. The following year will see classes in years 11-13. The basis for the curriculum will therefore be the Cambridge A-Level programme, enriched with character development components, the Global Awareness Programme a varied co-curricular programme and other notable examples of best practice. We seek to appoint outstanding A Level Subject Teachers from May 2020.
