Our Lady & St Bede Catholic Academy is a Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic School in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle.
As of September 2019 there are 964 pupils on roll
Visits to the school can be made by prior arrangement with the Deputy Head.
The school promotes the Catholic faith and we work closely with local parishes and feeder schools to create a Catholic family. A voluntary mass for pupils is held every Friday morning and all year groups undertake religious retreats.
We are part of the Hexham and Newcastle Catholic Partnership which comprises 11 schools and provides training for staff and events and learning activities for pupils.
