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 paper, VR paper and a computer based Maths assessment. There are exemplar papers available for the English and VR assessments but pupils cannot be tutored for the Maths test and therefore there are no past papers. What we can say is this will give a true picture of your child’s potential in a relaxed environment.

I look forward to welcoming you to the College soon.

Admissions Officer
