St Bede's House
In joining St Bede’s, boys become part of an extremely strong and supportive house family. I’m often asked what sets Bede’s apart from other houses and certainly, this camaraderie and emphasis on peer to peer support in all areas is an intrinsic quality we seek to develop in every Bede’s boy, writes Housemaster Mr Mike Matthews.
This house spirit is evident in the fact that we are a house who places great importance on charity and over the last three years we have raised more than £15,000 through initiatives such as a house Everest climb, a run from Worth to Africa and our infamous annual open air music festival, Glastonbedes.
We have a beautiful house located in on the fringe of the campus surrounded by ancient woodland and most importantly for the boys, within touching distance of the Astropitch, tennis courts and golf course! Whatever a boy’s talent, Bede’s is an environment where we embrace individuality and through mutual respect seek to bring out the best in each other. Our house prayer says it all;
ST BEDE’S HOUSE PRAYER
O God, you have brought us together
as a house family.
We need one another.
We love one another.
We forgive one another.
We work together.
We play together.
We worship together.
Let the strong always have
something to strive for
and the weak nothing to run from.
We are St Bede’s.
These are our hopes and ideals.
Help us to make them a reality every day,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
