Headmaster's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Bede’s Prep School: I hope that reading through our website will give you a real flavour of what it means to be a member of our school community. 

Throughout these pages you will find so many phrases that define the values of our school - a nurturing, caring and innovative community where children are encouraged to be creative, curious and confident. 

Bede’s pupils are our best ambassadors: valued as individuals, they develop excellent thinking skills across the age range, enjoy a broad range of opportunity whatever their interests and talents and, perhaps most importantly, develop a genuine sense of social responsibility.

By blending traditional values with a forward-thinking approach we provide a secure, stimulating and enriching environment where children can flourish.

We recognise the vital role that parents and guardians play in children’s development and as a school we are committed to working closely with home to ensure the best outcomes for all in our care. I very much hope that you will visit us and look forward to welcoming you in person to share the exciting and vibrant experience enjoyed by our pupils.
