At Silver Bells, our vision for the Co-Curricular life of the school is very much in line with the school motto of ‘Bright Beginnings’ Through our wide range of co-curricular opportunities, we aim to give our pupils every chance to find and excel in their passions outside of the classroom. We believe that a rounded individual with a passion for a multitude of activities is an individual who will thrive both in the classroom and in their future careers. As such, we place a large degree of emphasis on the participation of all students in the co-curricular life of the school, with the focus on building personality traits which will serve our pupils well, long after they have left Silver Bells.
Clubs and Activities
In addition to every child being given the opportunity to participate in 45 minutes of high-quality games sessions every weekday, based around the key sports for each term, there are also regular clubs and activities which run before and after school, as well as over the weekends, allowing pupils to discover new hobbies.
The school also places a high emphasis on Music, with dedicated peripatetic lessons being run alongside group choirs, orchestras and ensembles. In games sessions, when not participating in sport, children across the school have the opportunity to practise and work alongside others in learning instruments and performing musical pieces. Silver Bells is proud to host its famous ‘Multicultural day annually.
The final area where our co-curricular vision is felt keenly is in the weekend program which is provided for our pupils. Taking advantage of our beautiful site and high-quality facilities, we are able to put together a programme which allows our pupils to pursue adventure, creativity, and excellence. We run Uniformed Organisations, such as Guides and Scouts, where our pupils can learn life skills and leadership qualities. In addition, a watersports program is being developed to use the lovely lake which we have on site, whilst additional emphasis is being placed on outward bounds, with the aim of giving our children a real passion for the outdoors, again using our beautiful site as inspiration. Alongside, arts, music and other hobbies, we provide a range of activities to ensure that no weekend is ever dull for a pupil at Silver Bells
Throughout all of this, a theme of Leadership underpins the co-curricular life at SilverBells, with every activity or club promoting the ethos that our children should be learning key leadership skills which will help them in life. We look to create rounded individuals, with a passion for achieving in whatever they do, who act based on key values and a strong faith. By doing this, they develop as team players and leave us confident in the way in which they can shape the world.
Christian Values lie at the heart of Silver Bells international school. Daily Devotion bring pupils and teachers together to learn about the Bible and worship collectively.

At Silver Bells , the education is extensive and challenging. Pupils from as young as 2 years old follow the British Curriculum, focusing on learning through play and foundational skills.

Regular communication with parents and family visits are encouraged.
From the youngest of our children in Year 1, all the way through to our leavers in Year 6, the children are taught seven leadership principles that help them lead themselves and lead others. These Biblical principles focus on every child discovering the gifts which God has given them and allowing them to shine as brightly as possible.
