Being a Day Pupil at Bede's
The ethos of the Day Houses at Bede's are fundamentally the same - to provide safe, happy and inclusive environments to enable all pupils to meet their Academic potential.
Each House has between 80 and 100 pupils divided between the First Year (Year 9) through to the Upper Sixth (Year 13) and each pupil has a Personal Tutor who sees them as an individual and as a group at least once a week.
As a Day Pupil ay Bede's you will quickly discover that there are great many House Events spaced throughout the year, including Charity Fundraising activities, Socials and the House Cup Competitions.
Elsewhere, the members of each House elect a number of representatives from each year group to sit on the House and School Councils and House Prefects, who are predominately Sixth Form pupils, who take responsibility for helping to run not only the House but Bede's as a whole.
The Houses are the hub of life at Bede's and form and important part of the school's structure. Each has its own identity however, as you will no doubt soon discover.
“ My background is as an economist, and my ultimate objective at Bede's is to ensure that what we're doing matches the rhetoric. ”
