School Motto
“I am, I can, I ought, I will”


A happy school, with high academic standards, San Silvestre School provides an environment which fosters individual goals and achievements while providing a friendly and caring atmosphere throughout the school.

The dedicated staff is committed to providing a stimulating environment in which the needs of the girls are met in every dimension of school life: the academic, sporting, cultural, artistic, technological, social, civic and spiritual aspects.

Each girl, from Nursery to the end of Secondary is encouraged to strive to meet her full potential within a safe and empowering environment in which she can grow in confidence whilst developing a growth mindset.

As a British-Peruvian school, it is absolutely essential that we transmit the intrinsic value of both cultures, strengthening students’ individual skills and encouraging their overall development.

Academic rigour, achievement, bilingual language acquisition, social commitment and striving to reach one’s full potential are some of the goals achieved through consistent encouragement and monitoring from a very early age.

“I am, I can, I ought, I will”

This is our motto, which is a true reflection of the philosophy of life which we try to transmit to the girls who have been entrusted to us.
