About us

Built in 1956 to serve the local Catholic community, St Bede's is located in the beautiful semi-rural West Lancashire town of Ormskirk. Within easy reach of the major cities of the North West of England via the motorway network and rail links, St Bede's is a smaller than average Catholic comprehensive school with seven hundred pupils on roll. A vibrant and progressive learning community, St Bede's boasts academic outcomes which compare favourably with both national and Lancashire figures. Our cohesive and skilled staff supports pupils in their personal, academic, social and spiritual growth, ensuring that they become fully rounded young adults, prepared for the next steps in their lives.


We are proud of the welcoming ethos which visitors to our school are only too ready to comment upon. We recommend that you consider joining our highly respected community in which you will be challenged professionally and supported, nurtured and developed along your career path. Please do not hesitate to contact school should you need to seek clarification on any aspects of your application. Our outstanding office support team will point you in the direction of relevant colleagues in school.
