St. Bede's Catholic College has been recognised for their level of performance and has joined Leading Edge, a national network of exclusively high-performing secondary and special schools.
Leading Edge supports schools working in partnership to raise achievement, develop innovative practice and share practical strategies within and beyond the network.
Run by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT), Leading Edge is made up of schools who have demonstrated statistically significant levels of progress and that their students perform above the national average.
SSAT's Chief Executive Sue Williamson said ‘We are delighted to welcome St Bede's Catholic College to our Leading Edge network. It is a credit to the hard work of all of their staff and students that they have been recognised as high-performing and we look forward to working with them.’
Mr Maher, Principal of St. Bede's Catholic College, said; 'Our ambition is to remain a great place of learning and to continue to ensure that students receive a quality education. To be recognised by SSAT in the Leading Edge Network of schools is testament to the commitment, dedication and hard work of everyone involved here at St. Bede's.'
