Bede's is a school that helps young people achieve more whatever their talent, and one of the many factors which sets us apart is our dedication to putting the needs of pupils above everything else.
We offer over 40 courses at GCSE and almost double that number in the Sixth Form, and do this because we believe that every pupil should have the opportunity to pursue passions personal to them.
Each academic department is exceptionally well resourced, whether that be in our Art School, which has been repeatedly recognised as one of the best in the country, our Science classes, in which practical experiments are the order of the day, or in our Humanities subjects where outstanding learning materials, trips and partnerships with local institutions, such as the Lewes Historical Society or Sussex University, bring learning to life.
“ Children are not made in a factory, and thus they are not all the same. Where one will revel in the study of mathematics another will be happiest with a paintbrush in hand. It is a recognition of this endless variety that underpins all we do. ”
