The pages of a prospectus and website can only hint at what a school is really like; it is people and relationships that matter more than glossy pictures and clever text. I hope, however, that you can get a flavour of what life is like at Bedford School from what follows and, as you do, that you will want to visit us.
We work hard to create an environment where boys will be happy, grow in self-confidence, thrive academically, and make the most of the many opportunities we offer. We pride ourselves on the pursuit of excellence both inside the classroom and out, and on encouraging boys to develop their talents, discover new interests and prepare for the world beyond school.
We care about results, but not exclusively. We believe education is about more than grades: it is about awareness of the world, about independent thought, about values. It is about the benefits of team sport, of culture, of academic ambition. It is about learning with enthusiasm. It is about growing up in a caring community where all, staff and boys alike, are passionate about what they do. That is what we aspire to and, I am confident, deliver.
Do come and see for yourselves: meet the boys, meet the staff, and meet me. I look forward to welcoming you to Bedford School.
