St Bede’s, Ormskirk

For decades, the parishes of Ormskirk and Scarisbrick have been served by the Benedictine monks of Douai. The local Catholic High School, St Bede’s, is a coeducational comprehensive school, taking students from the ages of 11 to 16. The school has an excellent pastoral programme, including the Laudato Si scheme, which has resulted in a garden for community outreach, including an outdoor prayer space. The Foundation hopes to work closely with St Bede’s in the future.
