What the Good Schools Guide says...
Situated at the end of Eastbourne seafront on the cliffs - wonderful sea views and a quick jaunt to the beach, but still sporting enough greenery for a rugby/football/cricket pitch. Perched high on the cliff top is a large architecturally-pleasing home where Mr Peter Pyemount, the founder of the now flourishing St Bede's Trust and head of history, lives.

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.
