About the School: 

Located in West Bridgford, on the outskirts of Nottingham, The Becket School has a real sense of community that you can see and sense as you walk around the school.

The Becket School is a heavily over-subscribed and highly successful Catholic Voluntary Academy, part of the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust with a sixth form of over 250 students.

As a Catholic school, we recognise the uniqueness and worth of each individual and that each of us has a valuable role to play in The Becket. Students, staff, families, governors – all work together seeking the very best and giving their best.

We are committed to cultivating an equitable working environment where staff treat one another with dignity and respect and where every individual can fulfil their potential.

This diversity is fundamental to our values and enriches the lives of the students within our schools.
