Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust

In December 2019 the Diocesan Academy Policy was revised with the aim that all Diocesan schools will become academies within one of the four Diocesan Trusts by July 2022.

Our Governing Body's priority remains to enable the school to continue to provide an excellent Catholic education for our children, whilst continuing to be at the heart of our community.

In line with Diocesan policy, our Governing Body has decided to consult with parents, carers, staff and other stakeholders, on whether our school should become an academy and join the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust.

Kind regards,

Mrs Young



​St Bede’s converted to academy status and joined the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust on 1 December 2020. We are very proud of our place within the Trust which is part of the wider plan for providing an excellent Catholic Education for all pupils across our diocese.

As part of the Bishop Bewick CET, we want to ensure that all the children in our schools experience the best education possible, and so we are committed as a community of schools to come together and harness the very best of ourselves, to embed this fully and to support each other so that all schools thrive and learn.
