Governors

As Governors of Saint Bede's, we are proud of our school and very keen to see it develop for the benefit of the pupils of this area. Saint Bede's Catholic High School was created in 1961 for around 350 pupils. There are now around 820 pupils at the school and different sections have been added over the years.

 

Mrs Julie Jones is Chair of Governors at Saint Bede's. If you wish to contact Mrs Jones on any school-related matter, please do so by telephoning the school and giving your contact details.
