Each year group has a Head of Year and Assistant Head of Year, who will be the point of contact for pupils and parents. Pupils are placed in a Prep Group led by a tutor who they will see everyday. These staff members will be responsible for monitoring academic progress, attendance, punctuality, uniform and welfare.
Each Prep Group is part of a “House” which is identified by the colour of the badge on a student’s tie.
Students will be placed in a Prep Group with someone they know from primary school. If students are coming from a school on their own, they will be placed with other pupils who are in a similar situation.
Bede Reward System
All students are rewarded through the Bedes system. Students will be rewarded for various reasons such as having a positive attitude to learning, attendance and punctuality, contributions to school life and wearing uniform correctly. Each term those with enough Bede points are eligible for the end of term reward. Details about the reward system will be given by personal tutors when you start St Bede’s.
The St Bede’s Way
Rather than rules, we encourage all students to follow the ‘St Bede’s Way’ so that high standards are met at all times. We believe that showing respect to other people and your environment is important and ensures that our school is a calm and safe place for all its students.
