St Bede’s College – The Place to Be


Welcome to our website which we hope will give you a flavour of what life is like at St. Bede’s College. St Bede’s  was founded in 1876 by Cardinal Vaughan, who at that time was Bishop of Salford. We are incredibly proud of our deep-rooted Catholic faith and we are equally proud of the College we have become; a wonderfully diverse, multi-cultural, multi-faith school family.

On entering the main corridor our visitors often comment on the atmosphere as there is a special buzz as everyone is engaged in their daily routine. Our pupils have a wealth of talents and there are many opportunities for these to be developed in the classroom and beyond. Sport, drama, music, school visits and the co-curricular provision are often topics of discussion amongst our pupils.
