Settlebeck School 

Settlebeck School is a very small fully comprehensive, inclusive, 11-16 school in Sedbergh. The school serves a wide rural catchment area from Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales, to the town of Kendal and many villages and hamlets in between. We are a member of the South Lakes Federation. 

Settlebeck is proud of its status as a strategically resourced provision for students with Autism.

We are highly ambitious for all our students, whatever their ability, whether they have or may have special educational needs.  At Settlebeck, we believe all students are entitled to high quality teaching and learning, the most appropriate curriculum offer and the best guidance.
