Welcome to St. Bernard's
Welcome to St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School. Thank you for taking an interest in our school and I hope that you will find the information on our website helpful.
We are a unique school; we are the only co-educational Catholic Grammar School in the country. First and foremost we are a Catholic school where each child is loved and valued for having a divine origin and an eternal destiny.
We were founded in 1897 by the Bernardine Sisters and we maintain their traditions of prayer, service, vocation and an extraordinarily friendly atmosphere. Our students are wonderful: hardworking, generous, considerate and are a joy to be with.
The teachers are also remarkable; they work very hard both inside and outside the classroom. We focus upon educating and supporting the whole person and, as a consequence of this, our examination results are outstanding. The extra-curricular life of the school is flourishing and testifies to the service and generosity of the staff.
I believe St Bernard’s is a very special school. As you read through the pages on this website, I hope you will gain an impression of what life is like here. Only a visit to the school can enable you to fully experience our ethos and I encourage you to come along to one of our September open mornings, or contact the school to visit at another time of year.
With best wishes,
Michael Stimpson M.A. (Headteacher)
