Welcome to St Bede’s College Prep. Enter into our vibrant Catholic community and experience a place of enthusiastic learning, achievement and a commitment to nurturing your child’s potential. We provide the first important steps in a seamless education for both boys and girls from 3 to 18 years.

We are the leading Co-Educational Independent Catholic Preparatory department serving the Greater Manchester region, with our pupils representing a wide social and ethnic mix. We provide exemplary teaching and pastoral care and a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities.


All of these are designed to give your child a breadth and depth of education and all-round development that is unrivalled. At St. Bede’s College Prep, we have built our reputation on traditional values, academic excellence and a whole-hearted commitment to your child’s spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, social and physical development. Above all we foster a strong sense of family and Christian community in a safe and caring environment where Christ is the unseen, but ever present teacher in every class. He is a living model for the staff and the inspiration for all our pupils.

This website gives no more than a glimpse of the opportunities available here for your child. We would like the opportunity of sharing our vision with you. I do hope you will come and visit us, meet our pupils and staff; I look forward to welcoming you personally.
