Thread of Gold - The Sedbergh Philosophy


At Sedbergh we believe children best develop skills and attitudes when they are inspired. Our intention is to create skilful, adaptable people both on and off the pitch. GOLD underpins all the above.

Sedbergh’s Thread of GOLD: - GROWTH, ORIGINALITY, LEADERSHIP and DETERMINATION  is integrated into each programme with fun and enjoyment at the very heart of delivery.



Developing a self-aware conscious athlete



The ability to think independently and creatively



To inspire teammates in a dynamic environment towards a collective goal



To persevere and remain focused when presented with mental and physical challenges

Environmentally we look at how kind people are to each other. It is important to us as coaches to have daily positive and productive interactions with every child. It gives us information to act upon, creates great energy and a strong platform to learn.

The magnificent location of Sedbergh means pupils can enjoy school life in a safe, healthy and dynamic environment. The opportunities for outdoor activities are almost unlimited – from a walk in the hills to mountain biking, or the calm of fishing to the challenge of kayaking.

While academic study is central for every pupil the experiences of a Sedberghian are never confined only to the classroom.
