Day Pupils account for approximately 60% of the pupil body at Bede's and come to us each day from across the Home Counties, Sussex, Surrey and Kent, either brought to school by their parents or via our extensive bus service.
All Day Pupils have exactly the same access to our outstanding facilities as our boarders, including our Fitness Suite, Art School and campus-wide high-speed internet; the only difference is that they head home at the end of the day.
Once accepted into Bede's, each Day Pupil is attached to one of ten Houses, all of which are fundamentally the same - they provide safe, happy and inclusive environments to enable all pupils to meet their Academic potential.
Each House sees pupils vertically integrated into a family-style unit, with our First Year (Year 9) pupils rubbing shoulders with the Upper Sixth (Year 13) and every year group in-between.
Each pupil has a Personal Tutor who is linked to their year group and who sees them both in one-to-one sessions and as part of their Tutor Group at least once a week.
Day Pupils may also choose to stay at Bede's late, joining in evening activities or undertaking Prep at School, and taking advantage of our Late Bus service.
Day Pupils are also very welcome join in our Weekend Programme, taking part in Charity Fundraising activities, Socials and House Cup Competitions alongside Booster and Revision Sessions as well as a selection of additional GCSEs, A Levels and short courses.
Life as a Day Pupil at Bede's is busy, exciting and brimming with opportunity. If you have further questions about what it is like, please do not hesitate to contact us.
