Few things are as important for parents as the education they provide for their children. St Bede’s College is perched on a rise directly overlooking Port Phillip Bay in Mentone, 22kms from the Melbourne GPO. Few schools enjoy that same sense of space, along with such beautiful views. Classrooms overlook a wide green playing field that leads down to the beach.
In 2021, we established a second campus which is known as St Bede’s College, Bentleigh East. The population in 2021 is around 1940 students across the two campuses. Set priority Parishes are allocated to each campus of the College.
The College embraces a student learning culture where excellence in the academic, cultural and sporting areas is encouraged, recognised and celebrated. Relationships are the cornerstone of learning at St Bede’s College and are central to the community’s wellbeing.
The St Bede’s College Board of Trustees is committed to serving the Catholic Community of its designated Priority Parishes in the catchment area. The College exercises its mission under the authority of the Trustees of the De La Salle Brothers and the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne. To the level of its capacity, the College observes the enrolment policies published by the Catholic Education Office.
The College Enrolment Policy is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees who work in conjunction with the Catholic Education Office.
Statement of Policy
To the level of its capacity, St Bede’s College is committed to ensuring the enrolment of students from Catholic Families enrolled in a Catholic Primary School in the designated Priority Parishes in the catchment area. This policy also aims to support Catholic families who have sons enrolled in the College and to continue to develop and build the link with sons of Old Collegians who are currently engaged in Catholic Education to develop a strong Catholic culture within St Bede’s College.
