Thank you for visiting the Admissions section of our website.
Bede’s welcomes boys and girls able and eager to benefit from the unique character of our school and the many opportunities it offers for nurturing their academic and personal development.
We understand how daunting the process of choosing the next school for your child can be, and these pages are designed to help you begin that process. Our Admissions team is also at the end of the telephone, ready to offer more information tailored to you, but the most important first step is, of course, to visit us.
Many families choose to come to one of our Open Days first and then book their own bespoke tour and introductory chat. What we can promise, is that whatever form your visit takes, you will meet our pupils – our greatest asset - and discover from them why Bede’s might be the perfect fit for your child.
Our aim is be the school of choice for parents seeking an outstanding all-round education, along with a wealth of new experiences and outstanding pastoral care for their children.
Children have only one chance of education and it is our role to support and extend them in the classroom, to develop their passions and help them to discover new challenges, through our co-curricular programme. Our Admissions Process ensures that key staff have the essential information about your child to ensure they follow the right academic courses, access the sports and clubs they want to and benefit from our outstanding pastoral care.
Most children join us in Year 9 (13+) with some joining in Year 12 (16+). We usually have a few places available for Year 10 entry.
I do hope you find these pages helpful, but please call any of the Admissions team if you have any queries at all.
Richard Mills, Registrar
Linda Hopkins, Admissions Manager
Marian Baker, Admissions Assistant
Susanna Hicks, Visa Enquiries

If emailing, please provide your child's date of birth, your postal address and a contact name and number.
