With campus-wide high-speed internet, facilities including our Fitness Suite, Golf Course and Swimming Pool and rolling calendar of House Events, life for our boarders is action-packed - so much so that most of our UK boarders stay at Bede's for the weekends!
Some of our 300 boarders do go home at weekends and take advantage of our incredible, counties-wide Travel Service to either take them home or to one of the local train stations on our Early Buses. They then either return on Sunday evenings or on Monday mornings.
With trips each Sunday to the likes of Thorpe Park, Chinatown in London or out Paintballing however, the temptation for many is to stay in school and be with their friends!
All parents of Bede's pupils receive reports on effort and achievement every three weeks and, although we understand that it is often difficult for parents of boarders to attend our events and Parent Consultation Evenings, we look to welcome mums, dads, grandparents and friends of the family to visit our boarders as often as they like.
With award-winning boarding houses and our peerless Co-Curricular opportunities, exceptional school caterers and action-packed Weekend Programme, we pride ourselves on offering a 'better than home' experience.
