Keswick School 

Academy Secondary with Sixth Form

Keswick School is a co-educational day and boarding school. We invest time in developing positive relationships. These are revealed in personal qualities such as consideration, service and endeavour. Visitors are struck by the disciplined yet caring atmosphere and pupils who are mature, respectful and tolerant.

We value academic achievement, encourage excellence but appreciate that other qualities are equally likely to lead to success later in life. Our pupils broaden their horizons through the wide range of extra-curricular activities that run every lunchtime and evening, from chess, young engineers and horse riding to astronomy, rock climbing and journalism.

Keswick School is a special place. The history and traditions of the school are most evident in our pupils. They enjoy being here and are extremely proud of the school they belong to. If your values and aspirations match ours then you would be welcome to join us.
