Introduction to Sports
Bedford has an enviable sporting tradition stretching back over two centuries and our facilities more than live up to this legacy. A superb twin Astroturf complex with floodlights, an indoor 25 metre swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, a climbing wall, immaculate grass pitches and well-equipped Recreation Centre and Fitness Suite combine to provide the first class facilities from which many international players have emerged. In addition, the School enjoys strong links with several local sports clubs including the town's Athletics Club, Northants Cricket, Bedford Hockey Club, Bedford and Star Rowing Clubs and Nothampton Saints Rugby.
Almost all staff are involved in School sport at different levels and all boys are expected to take part. We aim to inspire students with a lifelong interest in sport and the well-being and fitness of each boy is promoted through a wide programme.
The major sports played are rugby, hockey, cricket and rowing but the range of sports extends to: athletics, badminton, basketball, canoeing, cross-country, fencing, fives, golf, sailing, soccer, squash, swimming, tennis, water polo and weight training. With so much scope, all can find something they enjoy, whatever their ability, and many find themselves excelling in a sport they would not otherwise have thought of trying. The School's aim is to enthuse each boy and to maximise whatever potential he possesses.
