Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

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 the academic, sporting, cultural, artistic, technological, communication, social, civic and spiritual areas. Each girl, from Nursery (3 year olds) to the end of Secondary (17 year olds), is encouraged to strive to meet her full potential within a safe and empowering environment in which she can grow in confidence.

As a British-Peruvian school, it is absolutely essential that we transmit the intrinsic worth 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.”

That is our motto, which is a true reflection of the philosophy of life that we try to transmit to the girls who have been entrusted to us. Our goal is to ensure that our students leave school with a high level of self- esteem, a good measure of common sense and the ability to stretch themselves, to commit themselves to become actively involved in their community and to assume the responsibility for their own actions. Our girls realise that through their own work, they can achieve personal development.


To empower girls,through a first class education, to have the confidence to be themselves, as principled citizens of an ever-changing world.

"I am, I can, I ought, I will"
