Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

St Bede’s College has an inclusive approach and is keen to support pupils with a range of talents and abilities. We are not SEN registered and do not cater for those who would gain an EHCP for moderate or severe special needs in state schools. For each pupil meeting the academic criteria for admission, the College will make reasonable adjustments so that any pupil is not disadvantaged. All pupils follow the appropriate timetable for their age group. However, additional learning support is available together with EAL support and may be charged as an extra.
