All boys must wear the school’s uniform, of which all major items are available from the school shop.

School Shop

At Bedford School we are fortunate to have our school shop located on the grounds of the school estate, just within the main entrance at 6 Burnaby Road. Purchases can also be made on the school shop website and collected in store.

Parents are required to make an appointment with the school shop when initially buying their son’s school uniform. Full details of opening dates and times can be found on the school shop’s website.

School Shop Website

The school shop, operated by No Limitz, reserves the two days before the start of the autumn term for boarding appointments. Appointments must be made with the school shop for these days.

The approximate cost of the uniform for Preparatory School boys is £450 for boys in Years 3 to 4 and £500 for Years 5 to Year 8 and boys in the Upper School.  Whilst this cost is for the core uniform and sports kit, some boys may require extra items if they are selected for school teams. Full details of the uniform are attached below as well provided to new parents in their Joiners Pack.

The school shop stocks not only the full school uniform but also an extensive range of sportswear and equipment, stationery, refreshments (including sandwiches, snacks and drinks) and school memorabilia and gifts. The school shop also offers a dry cleaning service.

Items purchased can be paid for by cash, card or cheque. Boarders can also purchase items on their blue bills, subject to a signed note (chit) from their Housemaster.

Parent Guild Nearly New Shop

The Parent’s Guild Shop is run by friendly parent volunteers and stocks clean, good quality uniform and sports kit for the Prep School and Upper School. Items are generally half the cost of new and sellers receive 50% of the proceeds (paid annually).

During term time it is open on the first and third Saturday of each month from 8.30am to 10.30am, and on the first and third Wednesday from 1.45pm to 4.45pm (excluding exeat weekends).
