St. Bede Academy Bolton is a Church of England Academy which works very closely with Manchester Diocese.
As an Academy, financial support comes directly from the DFE.
The Academy is constantly over-subscribed by local children and those who have moved out of the area and wish to continue their education with us.
The Academy is a very well-established feature of community life in Morris Green, and we have many second and third generation families attending St. Bede because of its reputation.
Originally known as the 'School on the Green' the original building was becoming totally inadequate, not only was it used as a day school, but services were held there on Sundays by the Rev. T.A. Clarke whose daughter ran the Sunday School and Bible Class.
In 2010 the school was awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted which rewarded the schools continuing hard work and educational ethos.
In a bid to continue the schools push towards greater autonomy, an application was made to convert to an Academy. This was realised on the 1st July 2011.
