What the school says...

The purpose of a school is to prepare its pupils for a rich, rewarding life. At Bede's this is our privilege and our specialism. Our philosophy means that whether a child is a drama scholar, maths prodigy or aspiring computer programmer they will have the specialist facilities and dedicated staff they need to surpass all expectations - including their own.

We support and enrich every individual, guiding them through lessons, supporting them on the sports field and connecting them with their passions through our expansive flexible activities programme. Our pupils are with us for their crucial, formative years, and we enable them to embrace the challenges and opportunities they will meet in their life beyond.

We expect a lot of each other at Bede's, and we will inspire our pupils to expect a lot of themselves. You will not find the same personalised, holistic, wholly educational experience anywhere else, and this helps us to ensure that every individual at Bede's has the chance to become extraordinary.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
