St Bede’s College is a proud Catholic co-educational school and continually strives to nurture and develop its pupils into happy, confident, kind and compassionate leaders, not only in the future but also in the present. We firmly believe that girls and boys deserve the same opportunities in all areas of their educational lives and fervently wish for them to go out and change the world for the better. Over the course of its history, the College has encouraged its pupils to be confident and modest young people, able to make the right decisions when the moments arise and determined to always give of their best. Our core values remain unchanged and we are steadfastly proud of them – the timeless Catholic qualities of humanity, compassion and empathy for others.
In an ever-changing world we believe that our constant values, and the myriad of educational opportunities which we provide for our young people, are as relevant to the world today as they were when the College was founded well over 140 years ago. We continue to encourage our inspiringly talented boys and girls to make the most of their amazing gifts and to give of their best in everything that they do. We constantly strive at St Bede’s to ensure that the transition between our pupils’ home lives to their daily endeavours at the College is seamless and that our boys and girls not only grow, but most importantly flourish, as they are immersed in the life affirming Catholic values which we unashamedly champion here.

The excellent outcomes in pupils’ personal development are due to the strong commitment of senior leaders, governors and staff to providing high levels of pastoral support.
