Bede's welcomes pupils from all over the world to engage in the very best of English immersion learning.

Our pupils become part of the boarding house family and are supported and stretched throughout the curriculum just like our native pupils.

Those with only a few words of English at the outset transform within a year into chatty members of the Bede's community and form lasting bonds with the staff and children in this warm and vibrant school.

In addition, they bring a rich multicultural dimension to school life for us all and are the best example to our foreign language learners of the respect commanded by those who branch out and cross social and linguistic barriers.

Our objective is to ensure that each EAL pupil is supported academically and pastorally and we work closely with Form Teachers and Boarding House Parents to achieve this goal.
