Welcome to St Bernard’s Catholic High School situated on the outskirts of Barrow in Furness in Cumbria in the shadow of Furness Abbey; a local beacon of history, religion and culture.
St Bernard’s Catholic High School is a truly inclusive school that welcomes pupils of all abilities. Our dedicated, enthusiastic and talented staff ensure that each child in their care has the best possible opportunities to succeed whatever their starting point.
Although we are a Catholic School; based firmly on Gospel values of love and service; you do not have to be a Catholic to experience what we have to offer, we welcome applications from parents of pupils of all faiths and none who wish to experience the commitment we have to provide outstanding education and care for each young person entrusted to us.
Our school is bright and welcoming and we have excellent facilities to support learning and teaching at the highest level and to enhance the wide variety of extra-curricular activities that we offer: successful sports teams, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, cultural trips and visits, choir, band and an annual musical performance, the list goes on and on!
We are a school firmly rooted in our community which stretches beyond our walls to our Catholic primary schools and parishes with whom we work closely so as to fulfil our Mission for Catholic education in the Furness area.
The motto of the school “to Work is to Pray” is seen on a daily basis in all that we do. Our school is an open school and we welcome all who wish to visit to see and feel what makes us special.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time, you will be most welcome. Mary Page – Head Teacher
