Joining the College

We warmly invite all parents considering St. Bede’s College to visit us soon, take a tour of the College during a school day to find out what is so special about a Catholic Independent School. We know that this experience will provide you with a flavour of the academic rigour of the College and the purposeful diligence of the pupils. It will also enable you to feel the caring and warm atmosphere that enables each individual child to thrive.

The College’s Entrance Assessment in held in January each year and offer letters are published on the date agreed by the Greater Manchester Consortium of Independent Schools. This date usually occurs in the first half of March. In accordance with the procedure agreed by the schools within the Consortium, parents are given twelve days in which to accept the offer of a place.

We believe that teaching boys and girls from 3 – 18 alongside one another, inside and outside the classroom is reflective of our family ethos and enables pupils to develop as well-rounded young adults.

Please contact our Admissions Manager, Helen Taylor who will book you a place on our next Open Morning and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to the College very soon.
