Welcome to St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School & Byron Sixth Form College.

At St Bede’s, we strive for excellence and aim to help all of our students achieve their full potential. The school is a happy, vibrant community where students work hard in their academic studies and are Involved In a wide range of sporting, creative, practical and social activities.

At the heart of St Bede’s, and underpinning everything that we do, is its mission to witness to Christ and to celebrate each individuals relationship with Christ and with one another in the light of Gospel values.

Our dedicated and well trained staff, give students the individual attention necessary to encourage them to achieve in all areas of their lives.

The high standards of teaching, the hard work of the students and active encouragement by parents, have all contributed to the school’s success. We work very closely with parents and value highly the support they provide. This close relationship is a real strength of the school, and we welcome prospective parents to come and see us.


48% of our students left with 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths. Well done to those students who did well and to the staff who helped these students achieve.

A number of students have done very well indeed, with Rebecca Hardy, Elizabeth Riddell, Frazer Terry and Ben Thornley all achieving at least 8 A* or A grades.
