Information about the School – St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School

The school is unique in being the only mixed, Catholic, state, voluntary-aided grammar school in the country. Four out of five students are Roman Catholic, some of whom travel from outside the local authority. Close to 70% of students are from White British, Irish or other White backgrounds with small percentages from several minority ethnic groups. The proportion of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is very low, as is the proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals. There are more girls than boys in the school, especially in Years 7 and 10. The school was awarded Artsmark Silver in 2010 and Fair Trade status was re-awarded in 2011. The school retains a focus on its humanities specialist subjects of English, history and religious education.
