From the Headmistress

At San Silvestre we take pride in providing a well-balanced education which places the formation of values of the child at the centre. We believe in creating a warm caring environment where the girls can develop their individual personalities and talents such that they are prepared to take their place in a global society.

Our teachers have high expectations and through supportive teaching this has maintained a long tradition of excellent academic results over time. The combination of a British/International curriculum which also meets the Peruvian national curriculum requirements, provides the perfect springboard for our girls to succeed in international examinations. Our students are fully equipped to attend universities both within Peru and overseas. Indeed we can proudly point to our girls attending some of the cutting-edge universities in the world.

Our school motto ‘I am, I can, I ought. I will’ reflects the sense of responsibility, caring and initiative our girls develop during their time at school. We strongly believe that an all-girls school provides a special set of opportunities which allows the development of self-belief and empowering every girl. I would like to welcome you to explore our website and visit us personally to see how our girls flourish and why San Silvestre is one of the outstanding schools in Peru.

San Silvestre is a leading all-girls school in Lima, Peru. We value and feel proud of our long-standing traditions while simultaneously embracing innovation, which places us at the vanguard of outstanding 21st Century education.

Our students are at the centre of everything we do. Our dedicated teaching staff encourage students to explore their diverse talents and interests in a safe all-girls environment.  The rich range of school experiences enables our girls to grow into confident and principled young women.  It is an absolute privilege for us to see how they develop and blossom during their time here.

I am proud to say that San Silvestre has been a huge part of my personal and professional life. I have very fond memories of my time in San Silvestre as a student and more recently, I was delighted to see my daughter form deep friendships and enjoy a wide range of unforgettable experiences in school. In the professional realm, I was part of the teaching team in the Primary Section, then a member of the Primary Senior Leadership Team and now I am privileged to be the Peruvian Director.

What do all of these experiences have in common? Our students, staff and parents feel proud to belong to such a warm and caring community of life-long learners. I hope that our website will transmit some of these sentiments. Please explore, and I am sure you will capture something of the essence of our happy and successful school.

Welcome to San Silvestre.
