I wish you a warm personal welcome to Silcoates. I hope that our website will give you a useful insight into life at Silcoates where our aims and ethos combine to make a life-changing experience for our pupils.

From the first steps of exploration to the mastery of their art, it means something to walk through our gates, to call yourself a Silcoatian. Each child is supported towards success, with limitless opportunities to shine and a Silcoates spirit that encourages our pupils to be comfortable in their own skin and appreciative of others.

Our pupils are grounded in a sense of inherent honesty and integrity; straight talking and unpretentious, hardworking, trustworthy, decent human beings, with a proper sense of morality. We aspire for our pupils to not only make sense of the world but also to improve it.

Please accept my invitation to visit us, to experience first-hand the stillness and calm of our 60 acre campus and the buzz and energy of our lessons. I look forward to meeting you in our Georgian mansion amid the glorious West Yorkshire hills and learning all about your children’s hopes and aspirations. You will be sure of a warm reception.
