We are seeking to appoint a practising Catholic with good catechetical formation and strong personal faith to serve the pastoral and spiritual needs of our Catholic community.
As a Catholic school within the Diocese of Lancaster, our ethos of ‘Being a Bede’ encapsulates what we believe we are all about in our school. We are a family and a community, in which each child in our care is supported and challenged to make the very most of their God-given potential and be the best that they can be in every aspect of their personal, spiritual and academic development. The role of Chaplaincy coordinator is pivotal to the continuation of our excellent pastoral and spiritual care.
Our expectations regarding behaviour, uniform and respect towards others are unapologetically high. Our pupils are proud to ‘Be a Bede’ and in turn we are proud of them and their achievements. Visitors to the school frequently comment on the calm and caring atmosphere they experience and the warm welcome they receive from pupils and staff alike.
‘At St Bede’s Catholic High School, students clearly feel part of a community where they are valued as unique individuals. They readily bear witness to the ways in which they are supported and cared for by senior leaders, the whole staff team, and each other. They appreciate the distinctive Catholic nature of their school, speak warmly of it, and value being part of the St Bede’s family.’
