University Visits to St Bede’s

A high level of achievement in our school exams is essential for university applications as these institutions ask us for confidential academic references. Some include financial assistance depending on the financial background of the caregivers. Some scholarships are never taken up because they have had no applicants.
For further information refer to scholarship database system “BREAKOUT.” This has been networked into the school computer system with easy student access. Mr Hooper is the Teacher in Charge of Careers.
