Headmaster’s Welcome


I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to St. Bede’s College, a Catholic HMC Independent School for boys and girls aged 3-18. St. Bede’s is a very special place, where young people are nurtured and supported in order to flourish and reach their full potential. The College is extremely proud of its Catholic heritage and has been educating young people with respect, dignity and compassion for over 140 years. Bedians are instantly recognisable as quietly determined, thoughtful and compassionate individuals.

Every decision that we take as a College is always in the best interests of our young people and it is an incredible privilege to be responsible for their spiritual, academic, co-curricular and most importantly character development. We firmly believe that the Catholic values, which we are proud to promote here at the College underpin our community, preparing our young people to take their place within society.

In order to fully understand and appreciate what makes our multicultural St. Bede’s College so special and so unique, I would warmly invite you to visit us for one of our open events and to see the College in action on a busy, vibrant term time day. Please do not just take my word for what sets the College apart from all other schools, but do spend time with our wonderful pupil ambassadors to find out for yourselves!

I look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the College in person in the very near future.

Mr L G d’Arcy
