Ethos & Values


The purpose of a Catholic school is to educate the whole person. At St Bede’s our mission statement is:

Developing mind, body, spirit and community.

‘Living life to the full.’ John 10:10

By living out this mission statement in school we will ensure that we are also helping the Catholic Church in fulfilling its mission too.

At St Bede’s we do this in many ways. The curriculum we offer is designed to cover the intellectual, physical, spiritual and social aspects of our humanity. As such we give our children many opportunities to explore their faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Our children will take an active part in daily prayer, worship, meditation and liturgy
