Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Here at Silcoates we endeavour to make that process as straight forward and rewarding as we can. Every child is an individual and we therefore don’t have a “fit all” approach.

During the admissions process we take time to get to know your child including their likes, interests and hobbies. In return they get to know us and can then make an informed decision as to whether Silcoates is the right environment for them.

Why are more and more people choosing Silcoates?

Word of mouth is the best form of advertising and our parents and pupils are the best ambassadors of the school. Our pupils are encouraged to believe in their talents and strive to achieve the best academic results they can, but most importantly they are well-rounded, kind, happy and supportive individuals who are able to grab all that life has to offer once they leave Silcoates.

Success in life is not all about gaining a straight set of A* grades it’s about being adaptable, creative and having a whole load of self-belief and resilience. The breadth of expertise within our teaching staff and the co-curricular opportunities available push and develop pupils to try things they never thought they could achieve. Happy, self-confident children thrive, it’s as simple as that.

When can I visit?

We have an Open Morning in September, however, the best time to see the school is during a “typical” school day. Come along and see the lessons in action, watch the interaction of pupils on campus and visit the breadth of facilities on offer. Meet the Headmaster and Senior team, and take time with our friendly admissions team who are there to ensure you gain all the information you need.
