The Bede’s Experience Day is the focus for those planning to join us in Year 9. Most children will join us for a BE Day when they are in Year 7 and we run a number of BE Days throughout the year.
Children attend in groups of 20 and the day consists of a group task, a group discussion, an individual interview, a computer-based verbal and non-verbal reasoning test and, after lunch the chance to join an activity of choice.
Whilst Bede’s Experience Days are designed to make sure that we can offer your child the support and ambition they need, they also serve as something of a taster day for your son and daughter and children thoroughly enjoy the day.
We will write to you, normally within a week of the BE Day, to let you know if we are offering your son or daughter a place at Bede’s. Our offers are not conditional upon Common Entrance results, so if the offer of a place is made, you can be secure in the knowledge that your child will be joining us in Year 9.

Pupils wishing to join Bede’s for the Sixth Form, attend a formal interview with a member of our senior staff and a member of our Sixth Form Team.
Before the interview, we will have been in contact with the pupil’s current school for references, reports and GCSE predications.
Offers are conditional on pupils gaining five GCSEs at Level 6 and above, to be accepted on an A Level programme. (Please note, around one third of subjects require Level 7 or above at GCSE to be accepted on to the course).
Pupils applying to join our BTEC programme require five GCSEs at Level 4 or above.
Our Sixth Form Team will be available on GCSE results day to confirm results.
