At Bede's Prep School, we inspire children to be model, outward-looking, cosmopolitan citizens, and enable them to learn that giving is more rewarding than receiving.
Everything we do is underpinned by supportive, friendly, superlative pastoral care, and throughout the school we encourage pupils to recognise and use their talents while also developing spiritual, moral and ethical values.
The children are involved in the setting of rules and procedures, older pupils have the opportunity to become Prefects, and through our House or 'Section' system we develop a sense of community and competition in every pupil.
A major benefit of this approach is that our pupils are a joy to be around, whether that be during their time here or in the future, when the return and tell us about how something we did made the difference for them.
“ Our aim is to get the children to feel part of a family; one that works hard, plays hard but above all looks after each other. ”
