It is my pleasure to welcome you to Venerable Bede CE Academy, where it is my privilege to serve as Headteacher. We are a popular and oversubscribed secondary school serving our local community. We sit on the border of Ryhope, Silksworth and Doxford Wards in Sunderland, but we have pupils who attend our school from across the City and beyond. It is our goal to provide an inclusive education, within the context of our local community, in which the rights of everyone are respected, regardless of personal beliefs. We are proud to be a school at the heart of our community.
