St Bede's in the Educational Community

St Bede’s recognises that it does not work in isolation and that it should engage in a range of levels and contexts to continually develop its skills and knowledge base. 

We look for opportunities to work creatively and collaboratively to benefit all of our school community. 

The Self-Improving School led System SISS. 

What works in delivering school improvement through school-to-school support ( 

Research indicates that school to school support can be incredibly effective at increasing pupils' attainment. 

“SISS is based on the idea that clusters of schools working together can develop improvement strategies that meet localised challenges through the sharing of professional expertise and efficient pooling of resources (Hargreaves, 2010; 2012)” 

Find below a description of the relationships the school has with a range of organisations.
