St Bede’s Catholic College is a wonderful place of learning, with an excellent culture and climate. Achievement and effort are valued and celebrated and our strong pastoral commitment ensures that every student is known individually and reaches his or her full potential within the context of a caring, Christian community. The well-being of each student is at the heart of our work and is fundamental to our success. We know that young people flourish when they are happy, safe and learning.
Students are enthusiastic about life in College and embrace the many opportunities to grow in faith, developing religious understanding and a sense of service. Spiritual and moral development lies at the heart of this vibrant faith community, as we each grow in the knowledge of truth and the pursuit of justice.
Our community is built on a foundation of mutual respect and kindness. We hold high expectations of ourselves and also of the students in our care. From the beginning, students are enabled to be active, enquiring, and critical open-minded thinkers. Students are encouraged to be ambitious, self-aware and caring, so that when they leave us they are well prepared for life in the world today.
The College has a long-standing tradition of scholarship and academic excellence. Our examination results are hugely impressive and we make no apologies for saying results matter. As important as they are, however, education at St Bede’s is about much more.
