St Bede's Catholic Junior School

St Bede, patron of our school, wrote: 'It was always my delight to learn and teach.' We are a celebrating community, living the Gospel values, committed to educating children in the light of the Catholic Faith. We journey together so that we: 'Might have life - life in all its fullness.' (John 10:10) We are a larger than average Catholic Junior School which serves an area of mixed housing in Widnes. The school shares a site with a neighbouring infant school which is under separate leadership. The school has received a number of awards including Investors in People, NAACE Mark, ICT Mark, the Healthy Schools Award, Artsmark Gold, Activemark Gold, Fairtrade Status, Basic Skills Quality Mark and the Inclusion Quality Mark.
