About St Bede's Catholic High School

We are delighted to introduce you to St Bede's Catholic High School. We are one of the highest performing schools in the area, with a great history and an exciting future ahead. We are heavily oversubscribed and the demand for places at St Bede's is ever increasing. Our Catholic identity is central to all that we do and we are seeking someone that could support and enhance our distinct ethos, vision and values.
Our vision is simple; we are striving to create a world class Catholic education that encourages our students to want to make the world a better place. We underpin this vision with values of love, faith and hope. Our Section 5 Ofsted inspection (May 2019) was extremely positive and the school continues to be ‘Good’. The inspection team added, ‘Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas’. The Liverpool Archdiocesan Section 48 Inspection in February 2020 judged St Bede’s to be an ‘Outstanding’ Catholic School. As a Catholic school community, we strive to educate, support and develop each pupil in our care.
Over 90% of our students are Catholic although, for many of them, school is often the only place they take time to worship, pray and reflect upon their faith regularly. Ofsted inspectors recognised that our pupils are well motivated and keen to progress in their learning. They are proud of their school and respectful of our Catholic values. We practice our faith extrinsically and intrinsically in our everyday lives. Extrinsically, we have an established retreat programme for all years, Mass weekly, acts of worship, prayer during form time, student involvement in the Faith in Action programme and observance of the liturgical year. Intrinsically, we acknowledge and reward acts conducive to the Catholic values we hold at the heart of our school identity.
