The mission of St. Bede’s School is to create an atmosphere of Catholic values, attitudes, practice and knowledge such that all children will have the opportunity for their faith to be nurtured. Thus they will be able to widen and deepen themselves as people in preparation for this life and for the life to come.

St Bede's aims to be a community inspired by CHRIST to serve others.

Common Good

To promote a spirit of charity, social justice, global stewardship and concern for others leading to a contribution to the common good.


To be an educational community built on foundations of faith, hope and love, which reflects Christ’s message of compassion, solidarity and forgiveness.


To build a community of mutual respect working towards a common understanding of high standards of behaviour, good manners and individual accountability, as well as encouraging students to make responsible and positive choices.


To be a caring, supportive and inclusive community inspired by Christ, recognised by our love of God and of our neighbour whilst nurturing qualities of resilience, determination, ambition, courage and commitment, in order to live fulfilling and purposeful lives.


To follow Christ's example of serving others, in a climate of kindness, humility, friendship and cooperation.


To encourage all members of the community to foster a love of life-long learning so that they can use their talents to the full, pursuing excellence in all things and in doing so, bring Christ to each other.
