Views from our Students:
Liza Mathew – Head Student 2022-23
I am proud to be the Head student here. I have been a student at St. Bernard’s since Year 7 and the best years of my life have been spent in this school. I have always had a very positive and bright experience and coming to this school: I’ve made amazing friends, developed myself as a person and made such fond memories!
Here, at the Sixth Form, St. Bernard’s offers many opportunities to further yourself as a person and as a student with a wide range of extracurriculars, like Debate clubs and Medical Society as well as many social, sporting, artistic, and leadership enrichment activities. These opportunities provide opportunities for the Sixth form students to develop lifelong transferable skills as well as excel in their academic studies.
In addition to this, the Catholic Ethos of the school has supported my spiritual and emotional growth.
The St. Bernard's community is inclusive and caring. Staff and students will always be here to help you in times of challenge. The teachers really have every student at the core of all that they do. Knowing that whatever decision or step I took that I would find the support here was one of the main reasons I chose to stay at 16.
Benita Basil – Deputy Head Student 2022-23
The key value in St Bernard’s Sixth form is to love one another as God has loved us and to work hard to achieve your potential.
Our skilled and friendly teachers, create an atmosphere of diligence and positivity in our classes, and I am proud of the effective relationships I have created with my peers and staff. We all want to succeed and support one another.
Having been at St Bernard’s from year 7, I have witnessed myself grow in maturity and ambition. I have proudly been able to undertake the role of Deputy Head Student. A-level study is demanding and it is most important to have staff to have a listening ear for you. That is why St Bernard’s High School excels above all.
