It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of St Bede's and St Joseph’s Catholic College. I do hope that you will find the site informative and useful; we try to update it on a regular basis and provide you with an insight into your child's school and what takes place both inside and beyond the classroom.
This school is now the biggest Catholic school in the Country, our aim is to be the best Catholic school in the Country; this will be achieved by encouraging individual members of our community to be the best person that they can be.
Our students are encouraged to be people who care for and respect one another and who recognise the dignity of one another as unique beings created in the image of God.
Through daily worship, an inspiring RE programme and well planned liturgies students come to realise that it is through genuine service of others that we achieve the fullness of life as promised by Christ.
We are a distinctive Catholic school that aims to provide a secure, safe and happy environment where all students will develop as confident, independent learners and where all students will experience joy, fulfilment and pleasure by partaking in the wealth of opportunities that the school provides.
We are also a top performing school where only the highest expectations are demanded of everyone in all areas of school life; because of this all members of our community are able to flourish.
In short we hope to build on the excellent work of our Catholic feeder schools in ensuring that there is excellent 3-18 Catholic provision in the City of Bradford.
