Saint Bede's School is a mixed comprehensive secondary school in the English town of Redhill, Surrey. In the most recent Ofsted inspection, the school was graded as "outstanding" in all areas.[1] It now has over 1700 male and female pupils aged 11–18 (Years 7–13), with around 330 students in the sixth form. Classes have an average of 28 pupils. The latest Ofsted report listed in the references provides further background information about the school, as does the school website.[2]


Formerly known as Bishop Simpson Church of England Girls School, St Bede’s School opened in September 1976 as a joint Anglican and Roman Catholic school and later included free churches on its governing body. It claims to be the first such fully ecumenical school in the world.[3][4]

Building works[edit]

Between 1988 and 1999 the school underwent large-scale building works to bring the school together on its present site, and to create new facilities for a library, ICT and careers. In 2004 a new arts centre was opened and in 2006 a sports hall was opened.[4]
