Head of Sixth Form Welcome

Thank you for considering St Bede’s College Sixth Form for your ‘Next Step’. Choosing the right combination of courses is vitally important to enjoying the Sixth Form and achieving your potential. We hope that this publication will assist you in planning your continued programme of study at St Bede’s.

Our aim has always been to provide the best A Level results of which our students are capable and to produce young people of whom we can be justly proud. We recognise the importance of high A Level grades in today’s world, but we never lose sight of our ideals that education is far more than simply academic disciplines. It is the nurturing of values and qualities that will prepare our students to take their place as leaders in tomorrow’s society, to be confident in their abilities and to reach the highest levels in their chosen careers.

We pride ourselves on a truly comprehensive and holistic education which combines the importance of academic rigour with a variety of opportunities outside the classroom. We strive to equip our students with not only the tools to pursue academic excellence, but also the self-assurance and confidence to embrace the challenges they will encounter. We offer a uniquely flexible range of options within our broad curriculum and our highly skilled and dedicated staff are committed to ensuring our students’ success and development. It is the quality of teaching and learning, the exceptional pastoral care and our holistic nature that distinguishes our Sixth Form.

Our academic results place St Bede’s Sixth Form as one of the best performing schools in the North West and we continually enjoy success at leading national and international universities with the overwhelming number of students being accepted for their first choice universities.

Our students are monitored and supported in a friendly, inclusive environment and encouraged to develop as independent learners. Students in the Sixth Form are expected to contribute to the wider community through our many charitable affiliations and by assuming roles of responsibility developing into leaders of the College.

If you would like any more information, or would like to arrange a visit to our Sixth Form, please contact me at the College
