St. Bernard's is a Catholic High School in Furness, and is situated on Rating Lane in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England. It was established in 1979, when the introduction of comprehensive education in the town resulted in a merger between the former St. Aloysius School (1953) and the Girls' Convent School (otherwise known as 'Our Lady's School', which had been operated by the nuns from Croslands Convent since 1929 ). It was officially established as a 'Specialist Science' School in 2006. The head teacher was Mr Eugene Tumelty who had been there for thirty years. He retired at the end of the 2010-2011 School Year. Mr Tumelty received the Benemerenti Medal for his religious teachings in the school. The headteacher is currently Mrs M Page.The houses were Campion, Fisher and More. Due to the expansion of the school there are now four houses.
