St. Bernard's High School, Bulawayo is a Catholic school located in Pumula, a high density suburb of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. One of its founding teachers and principals, Sister Ignatius Julie of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, died in 1993. She was the school principal at the time of her death. St. Bernard's High School started running A-Level courses in 2004. The school relies on its Christian foundation to balance the academic and religious growth of its students. Its motto is "Prayer and hard work lead to success."

Due to the downward economic spiral that ravaged the Zimbabwean Economy in the past 10 years[when?] and like most schools in Zimbabwe, St Bernard's lost professional staff to neighbouring countries. This has led to serious fall in educational standards.
