A message from the Headteacher

Thank you for your interest in St Bede’s and for taking the time to view our school website.

I am blessed and honoured to serve as Headteacher of St Bede’s Roman Catholic High School. Having worked at this school for over 20 years I have witnessed for myself how staff and governors place the child at the centre of everything we seek to achieve at this school.

Our school has an exceptional and consistent reputation as a community of learning and faith. This has been established on providing outstanding pupil care, high quality teaching and strong academic success. All our pupils are supported and encouraged to fulfil their God given potential and become the best versions of themselves: the people God created them to be.

St Bede’s is an inclusive school. We pride ourselves on the curriculum opportunities we offer pupils so that all can achieve their potential and develop their unique talents. We practise discipline with dignity and remain resolute in the pursuit of high expectations to support pupils’ spiritual, social, moral and academic growth. We believe this is best achieved through partnership with parents, pupils, teachers, parishes and the wider community. We are inspired by the Gospel where we are told: ‘Everything is possible for one who believes’ (Mark 9:23).

As Headteacher, it is a privilege to lead such a thriving learning community. I look forward to continuing this journey and working together to be of service to St Bede’s.

Mr D. Milton
