We want all our pupils to relish challenges, embrace their mistakes as part of the learning process, value the importance of effort, respond carefully to feedback and take inspiration from others. This will help them to achieve, not only with us, but also in their future lives as adults.


We have the highest expectations of all our pupils and believe that everyone deserves the very best possible support to realise their dreams and ambitions. We aim to develop self-confidence in all pupils so that they can achieve their potential, regardless of their ability, and remain lifelong learners who are committed to seeking truth.

If you wish to find out more about St Bernadette’s, please do not hesitate to contact us or call and book an appointment to visit us and see our school in action.
