Settlebeck School is a friendly, vibrant and fiercely ambitious school, where every student is treated as an individual. We are committed to making the difference for all our young people. We aim to ensure all our students are fully equipped with the skills and values to enable them to lead fulfilling adult lives and careers. We do this by focusing on their entitlement to the highest quality education which develops a love of learning.
Academic standards are our priority and we believe that exceptional results are a product of not only high quality teaching but also of the excellent care and support we offer all our students.
The ‘family feel’ of our small school offers security and a supportive environment where learning can be tailored to the individual needs of each one of our students.
Year 7 and 8 students at Settlebeck have explored mental health problems during their art and PSHE lessons. They have spent time discussing their emotions, how to seek help and also how to support each other. The monsters that have been created express the different emotions that the students have experienced. They have chosen colours and monster expressions carefully in order to show a range of different personalised feelings. Please use these monsters as a conversation starter to talk to somebody you trust about how you feel.
Everybody has their monsters; let’s fight them together.
A HUGE thankyou to everyone who provided cakes and visited school for our Macmillan Coffee Morning. We are delighted to announce we raised a massive £516. Well done to Mrs Waring and her band of hard working volunteers.
Despite the terrible weather Settlebeck enthusiastically took part in Kendal Torchlight procession. Pupils dressed as their favourite book characters to continue the theme of famous Lake District authors and ‘Made in the Lakes.’ We would like to thank Colin Parker for lending us his wagon, Simon Shaw of Lake District Scaffolding for creating a frame to keep us all safe and Phil Gardner from Sedbergh Fire Station for letting is park on their frontage. We are extremely grateful for their continued help and support. We would also like to thank school parent, Steve Middleton, for keeping spirits high on the float and dancing ALL night!
