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.

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!
Coming up at Kendal Library:
Morph follows Joey’s struggle to understand herself. On the face of it, a typical 17-year-old, she spends hours online, texting her best friend, researching, playing role-games where she can disguise herself in a new persona. She discovers that very little about being human is straightforward. Our senses can be modified by technology, body shapes change according to fashion or the way we live, and gender in the natural world is far more fluid than most people believe. What ‘natural’ isn’t at all the same as what’s ‘normal’.
Her sense that she was given the wrong gender at birth preoccupies her so entirely that she doesn’t notice the potential catastrophe in her friend’s life. But in the ‘natural’ world of the Lake District fells she feels released – and it’s the confidence acquired through fell-running that enables her to challenge her parents’ assumptions about her, to recognise that others have secrets to bear that are as difficult as her own, and to know who she is, at last.
