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.
