A place to grow

Principal's Welcome

Bacon’s College is a Church of England School with a commitment to high achievement within a community of care, underpinned by Christian values. The College encourages the development of the moral and spiritual well-being of students, alongside their academic success.

‘I came to give life, life in all its fullness’ John 10:10

Our ambition at Bacon’s is to raise the achievement and improve the life chances of our students and to serve our community by providing access to a range of activities, first class resources and opportunities.

Bacon’s College ensures that every student is well educated, cared for and exhorted to achieve the academic and personal excellence that will lead to university or skilled work and to a fulfilled life. ​

We are inclusive of all faiths, as well as none, and support unity between different religions, cultures and beliefs. All our students are individuals and every student is valued for their uniqueness and the skills and aptitudes they bring to the College. A key strength of Bacon’s College is the very high quality relationships that exist between members of a highly diverse school community - the College has a strong ethos that is shared by all. We deliberately and explicitly link the gospel of Christ with the daily life of the school through daily collective worship led by our College Chaplain.

I hope that our website and social media feeds give you a flavour of what life is like at Bacon's College, if you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We look forward to welcoming you.

James Wilson, Principal
