Joining St. Bede’s College


Thank you for your interest in St Bede’s College. Whilst the majority of our pupils will gain entry into the College aged 11, if there are places available, we will consider pupils for other year groups also.

This web-site will provide a snap-shot of how good the College is, but nothing will replace coming in and experiencing that tangible atmosphere for yourself.

Please contact me at: to arrange a tour of the College and to meet Dr Robson our  Headmaster. I will then organise for your son or daughter to experience a Taster Day at the College to find out first-hand what it would be like to be a St Bede’s pupil.

The next step is the entrance assessment for pupils entering the College at age 11 which is comprised of an English comprehension and creative writing paper, Verbal Reasoning paper and a written Mathematics paper. There is an exemplar paper available to download in order to assist with your child’s preparation.

Entrance Assessment Sample Paper – 2018 Entry

The completed applcation form, together with the registration form, should be returned as soon as possible.  The closing date for applications is Friday 15 December 2017. The entrance assessment for entry in September 2018 into Year 7 will be held on Saturday 13 January 2018 from 9.30am.

I look forward to welcoming you to the College soon.
