Bedford School is part of The Harpur Trust, a charity that has been providing education and supporting the community since 1566.

The Harpur Trust uses the legacy of its founder Sir William Harpur to inspire and support the people of Bedford Borough.  Over the past 10 years, it has given over £11 million in grants to local organisations and individuals, helping the most vulnerable in our community.

The Trust owns and manages four Independent Schools which include Bedford Girls’ School, Bedford School and Bedford Modern School (for pupils aged 7 to 18 years old), and Pilgrims Pre-Preparatory School (for children aged 3 months to 7 years). 

The Harpur Trust also sponsors the HEART Academies Trust and supports other local state schools through a range of education projects and grantmaking.
