A very warm welcome from the Admissions Department.

We aim to make the process of applying for a place at Bedford School as smooth as possible and our admissions team is here to answer any questions that you may have. We are always happy to talk you through the admissions process as you begin this journey with us for your son.

Bedford School welcomes boys for day and boarding places between the ages of 7 and 18. Our Preparatory School caters for boys from Year 3 (7+) until the end of Year 8 (12+) after which the boys move across into the Upper School. The whole campus is set in an impressive 50-acre estate, where boys of all ages interact with each other.

The main points of entry into the school are in Year 3, Year 7, Year 9 and Sixth Form. Entry into other year groups is, however, possible subject to the availability of a place.

You are welcome to visit the school, either on an open morning or by coming for an individual visit (or even both!). We are happy for parents to visit us as many times as they wish, either with or without their son. Each individual visit will usually include a meeting with the Head Master, so that you have the opportunity to discuss your son’s educational needs in more detail.

We are here to help you, so please feel free to contact me or any of the team in the Admissions Department with your questions.

We look forward to being able to welcome you to Bedford School in the near future.
