St Bede's

Men of the World

Whether you’re a domestic student seeking to broaden your horizons, an international student eager to immerse yourself in a new culture, or an old boy looking to reconnect with us, St Bede’s welcomes you to our global community.

International Students

St Bede’s College has a proud tradition of supporting the education of students from around the world. For more than two decades, international students have played a vital role in our boarding and wider school community, benefiting from unique opportunities for cultural exchange and personal growth.

The St Bede’s College curriculum is specifically designed for boys. Our state-of-the-art facilities and unique programmes encourage boys to persevere, persist and achieve personal excellence. Our renowned pastoral care program assists students in developing a sense of belonging while promoting their wellbeing in a safe and caring community.

Our dedicated staff are here to support you every step of the way as you embark on this exciting educational journey. Whether you’re interested in exploring new cultures, engaging in thought-provoking discussions, or pursuing academic excellence, we offer a wealth of resources and opportunities to help you achieve your goals.

International students can enjoy everything St Bede’s has to offer through a range of short and long-stay academic programmes or our International Rugby Programme.


Our alumni have gone on to become leaders, innovators, and changemakers in a variety of fields, making meaningful contributions to communities around the world. Our global network offers our old boys a unique opportunity to stay connected with the college, expand their local and global networks, and contribute to our future through gifts of time, talent, or treasure.

Service and Outreach

At St Bede’s, we believe in fostering a culture of compassion and action. Our commitment to service extends beyond the classroom as we actively engage with our local and global communities to make a meaningful impact. Our students learn the value of empathy, collaboration, and civic responsibility through volunteer initiatives, partnerships, and outreach programs.

We understand that service is not just a one-way street. That’s why we’re proud to offer a range of outbound and inbound student service and outreach opportunities.

Our outbound programmes empower our students to venture beyond the school gates and engage with diverse communities, locally and globally. From volunteering at local organisations to visiting developing countries where we can use our time and gifts to make a difference, these experiences broaden our students’ horizons, foster empathy, and cultivate global citizenship.

Inbound initiatives bring the world to our doorstep, welcoming individuals and groups from different backgrounds and cultures. We embrace the opportunity to learn from others and strengthen our bonds with the wider community by hosting international students, welcoming community organisations for collaborative projects, or providing support to those new to our community.

Exceptional Real-world Learning

Our commitment to global education goes beyond textbooks and classrooms; it’s a cornerstone of our philosophy.

We empower our students to explore, engage, and connect with the world around them, equipping them with the skills and perspectives needed to thrive in an increasingly interconnected society. From past achievements to present endeavours, our students embrace diverse perspectives, forge international friendships, and develop a deep understanding of global issues.
