St Bede’s School wants to help wherever possible to ensure that students have a good experience of education and make progress irrespective of their family income. There are bursaries available to help eligible students with the essential costs of participating in their study programme. Please note that the terms, ‘eligibility’ and ‘conditions’ may change from year to year based on government guidelines and the funding available.

School trips and visits

In order to make school trips and visits financially viable we ask for a voluntary contribution from parents. This contribution would be the cost of the coach, entry fee to the venue and any activities or workshops/tuition per child.

If parents/carers cannot make the full contribution due to financial restraints, or your child is/children are entitled to Free School Meals please contact the trips department directly on Please do not assume your child would not be able to go if you are unable to pay the full amount requested.
