Welcome to the St Bede’s website and to our school. St Bede’s has a reputation within Blackburn with Darwen and across Lancashire for high academic standards, good pupil behaviour and for providing outstanding opportunities for pupils to develop and succeed.

In 2013 we moved to our new building, which has provided us with access to a superb range of resources and accommodation. But buildings do not make great schools.  Great schools are communities with inspiring relationships between pupils and their teachers. The real quality of St Bede’s is inspired by our Catholic ethos and pastoral care and underpinned by high quality teaching and learning.

At St Bede’s we seek to create an environment where pupils are happy, challenged and successful; we aim to give pupils the chance to thrive and excel and believe that in partnership with parents, pupils and their teachers, all things are possible.

Mr Callaghan, Headteacher
