Mission Statement

Our mission statement roots the life of the school in the person of Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church. In living out our mission statement, St Bede’s will:

  • Assist the Church in making Christ known to all people.
  • Assist parents, who are the primary educators of their children, in the education and religious formation of their children.
  • Be at the service of the local Church – the diocese, the parish and the Christian home.
  • Be a service to society.


By sharing in the values of Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust, the St Bede’s community recognises the worth of individuals, responding with kindness and challenging prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination.

Respect for others and themselves, recognising that we are all created in the image of God and Self-belief in their character and their ability to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Compassion towards others, especially the vulnerable, promoting justice in their college community, local community and beyond.

Confidence in their own abilities, knowing that their talents are gifts from God and Resilience to persevere when things become difficult.

Honesty in regards to the world around them and themselves and to take Responsibility for the time we may fall short of the mark.
