St Bede's is a larger than average Roman Catholic high school with specialist status for physical education (PE). Ofsted conducted a subject survey inspection of PE in the school in December 2008. Nearly all students are of White British heritage with very few who speak English as an additional language. The student population is very stable and most staff have worked at the school for many years. The percentage of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is lower than that found nationally but, of these, the proportion with a statement of special educational needs is higher. The number of students known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. The school has been awarded various quality marks including the Sportsmark and Healthy Schools status. Since the last inspection the former deputy headteacher has been appointed as headteacher and is now in his fifth term.
