Boarding and Day School for boys aged 7 - 18 years

Learning at Bedford 

Academic excellence is our primary objective and the School's success is demonstrated by consistently high standards in GCSE, A level and IB examinations. The Bedford curriculum, extending well beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum, is structured to provide a balanced and varied choice of subjects that will stir the potential in each pupil and challenge his individual strengths. Both inside and out of the academic arena, boys are challenged through discussion, careful and knowledgeable specialist teaching, visits, lectures, mentoring, tutoring and prep. They are prepared with care for examinations and university, and are encouraged to develop independent and inquiring minds.

Excellence is celebrated throughout the School, not least in the provision of its resources. Every department is well equipped, the whole School is computer networked, the new library is perhaps the best of its kind in the country, and the arts facilities are outstanding. Great emphasis is placed upon good subject teaching. Class sizes are small and a strong partnership exists between families and the School with our staff always accessible to pupils and parents.
