Welcome to our website. We hope you will be able to navigate your way around, to get a feel for the Bede Academy, what we do and how we do it.
We consider your education to be a huge responsibility and it is one that we take very seriously. Your parents will care greatly about your education also, and they have entrusted you to undertake your education at Bede Academy. We aim to provide a high quality service to your parents as well as to you, by providing outstanding teaching and a learning environment in which you can aspire to achieve your very best.
Here at Bede Academy, we talk a lot about “Personal Best”. This is the idea that, regardless of your ability, you can work hard to achieve the best that you are capable of achieving – in your academic studies, on the sports field, in music and drama, in positions of responsibility, and in all other areas of Academy life. We do not want you to worry about the achievements of others around you, but to focus on yourself and what you are able to give. We are keen that you work hard and take the matter of your education very seriously indeed. We are also keen that you try your best, time and time again, even when you experience failure and difficulty.
There are seven Core Values that are very important to us: Honourable Purpose, Humility, Compassion, Integrity, Accountability, Courage and Determination. You will hear us talk a lot about these Core Values during your time with us. Each of these values forms a vital part of your character and personality, and we are keen that you explore each of these with us. It is our aspiration that you will develop into a caring and considerate individual, who can be trusted and relied on by others. As you go on to take up your place in society, we are keen that you are hard working, honourable and courageous in what you do, whether as an employee or employer, husband, wife, parent, carer or neighbour. We want you to take your role in society seriously, and to care greatly about how you treat others. Is that what you want too?
At Bede Academy, we set high standards. We expect you to attend Bede Academy consistently, behave well, work hard and give of your best. We are not an Academy that will allow you to rest on your laurels. Quite the opposite; we want you to be always pushing to learn more, to do more, to give more. We want you to never be satisfied with the status quo, but to always ask yourself “What can I learn from this and how can I get better at what I do?” If you go through life with this attitude, the opportunities before you will be limitless.
Students of Bede Academy have earned the reputation for excellent behaviour – in the classroom, around the Academy, and beyond the gates out into the local community. We do not tolerate any student who chooses to behave poorly as they are placing not only their own education at risk but also the education of others around them. Teachers create a disciplined and orderly environment where they teach and where students can learn.
As time goes by, our examination results at GCSE, BTEC and A-Level keep improving. This is not a happy accident. Instead, it is the result of a great deal of hard work and application from our students and staff. If you want to be part of an Academy that strives to always get better and do better, for the sake of all of its students, then Bede Academy is the right place for you. What we do know is this – your parents will want you to work hard and achieve your very best. That should be your ambition also.
