Highly personalised learning programs for all groups of students including the most able ensure they make good progress, reach above average standards and achieve well.
Students’ behaviour is excellent, both in the classroom and around the academy. They have extremely positive attitudes to learning and work very hard. Students say how very safe they feel in the academy
The students are at the heart of everything this academy undertakes. Each student’s abilities, ambitions and needs are known by every adult who works here
The academy has benefited substantially from the experience, vision and drive of the current headteacher
We are a High Performing Technology and Science School, a member of the Rural Academy and also of the South Lakes Federation, all of which provide extensive opportunities for our students and staff, within and beyond Settlebeck School itself.
We were judged to be 'outstanding' in our most recent inspection. This reflects the high academic standards our students achieve, the excellent specialist teaching from highly qualified and experienced staff, but also the individual knowledge we have of each of our students and the support and care that we can provide as a result. Our students achieve excellent exam results, which puts us consistently in the top few comprehensive schools in Cumbria.
