We have high expectations of our boys, and support them with everything they need to fulfil their potential.
A broad curriculum covers all academic fundamentals. English, Maths and Science are at its core. Boys are taught French, Geography, History, Design Technology, Art, Music and Religious Education as separate subjects from the age of 7 with opportunities to learn Spanish, German and Latin from 11 years old. ICT skills are developed by means of a combination of taught lessons and an overall cross-curricular approach.
Music and arts play a big part in school life. Boys can choose to learn a variety of instruments and have the chance to play and sing together in a variety of bands, orchestras, ensembles and choirs. Our theatre makes the perfect home for drama productions, some of which are staged jointly with girls from Bedford Girls’ School.
Rugby, Hockey and Cricket are our main sports and games, and and the vast majority of boys play competitive fixtures against other schools. Boys can also enjoy and play competitive fixtures in a range of other sports: Football, Athletics, Cross Country, Swimming, Tennis, Basketball, Squash, Badminton, Gymnastics, Swimming, Fencing and Rowing. We share the impressive sports facilities with the Upper School and benefit from expert sports coaching from experienced teachers.
