Bede's Senior School

Bede's inspires young people to achieve in every facet of their educational experience.

To do this, we place the individual and their passions at the heart of what we do.

Our philosophy of breadth and excellence in the academic curriculum as well as our range of cultural, aesthetic, intellectual and sporting activities outside the classroom serves our pupils' uniqueness very well.

Most importantly, these enriching experiences are open to everyone and not just an elite few.

Pupils, teachers and parents all have roles to play in the Bede's community, and we encourage everyone to set their sights high.

Our aim is for each child to make an outstanding contribution in all aspects of their lives: in school, in the local community and the wider world.

We will do everything we can to make that happen.

Register for our Open Morning on 20th September
