We welcome local day pupils together with both national and global boarding children – fostering a cosmopolitan culture and celebrating diversity.
Boarding at Saint Bede’s is always a popular option. We aim to offer children a home from home and we offer all our day and boarding parents flexibility. Boarders enjoy a happy, friendly, supportive environment in which they thrive. They benefit from consistently judged “outstanding” pastoral care, from the headmaster and his family, from Matron and house parents.
As well as a full working week of lessons, we also offer weekday and weekend Masses, production and concert rehearsals, educational visits, match days, clubs, boarding activities and shopping trips.
Our policy includes not only weekly and ad hoc boarding, but the opportunity for day children to arrive in time for breakfast and to stay for supper – ideal for time-pressed parents.
