Our Junior School nurtures pupils to become intellectually and emotionally curious, with a fundamental desire to achieve. Pupils are given limitless academic, social and cultural opportunities to flourish and prepare for life in Senior School.

Our small class sizes, and outstanding pastoral support, means pupils are supported and encouraged to pursue their passions and be outrageously ambitious independent learners. Pupils are supported and encouraged to be straight talking, unpretentious, hardworking and trustworthy, and are given the tools and support to prepare for life after Senior School.

Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form is an environment where confidence, articulacy, aspiration and leadership skills are nurtured, recognised and celebrated inside and outside the classroom. Pupils become masters of their art, and are given the support and tools to follow their dreams and aspirations.

Opportunity around every corner

Silcoatians are never on their own; they are supported, listened to and known as individuals. Our outstanding pastoral support, coupled with first class teaching, extensive co-curriculum programme, and kind and nurturing community, provide all pupils with the opportunity to fulfil and even exceed their academic, creative and sporting potential. It means something to walk through our gates; to call yourself a Silcoatian.
