Boarding and Day School for boys aged 7 - 18 years

Transfer to the Upper School 

Transfer to Upper SchoolIn the Preparatory School, the foundations for future education have been laid and the boys leave us equipped with the skills that will enable them to cope with the new challenges they will face. They move on smoothly to the Upper School, familiar with the staff and the environment and in the company of their friends. All have to sit a Transfer Examination and for certain boys the Academic Scholarship Assessment may be an option. Boys who show a particular ability in Music or Sport will also have an opportunity to sit for a Scholarship.

In the lively atmosphere of the Upper School, they will be presented with a wealth of exciting new opportunities and challenges. Bedford is a school where fundamental traditions combine with innovative educational thinking. It has an outward looking philosophy that is exemplified by the introduction of the International Baccalaureate as a Sixth Form option.

From his first days with us and throughout his school career, every boy is challenged to give of his best, to value himself and others, to establish his own field of excellence and, ultimately, to leave the School with his ambitions extended.
