Welcome from the Admissions Department.

Whilst the school remains partially closed, we are still accepting registrations for new pupils, and our Admissions team is available to respond to any queries you may have during normal working hours. Please do email them at admissions@bedfordschool.org.uk.

Personal Visits

At this time we cannot carry out any personal visits. However, we plan to resume personal visits and tours as soon as we are able, so please do email us and we will keep in touch with you. 

At this time, rather than meeting families face to face, we are instead offering video calls during which you can find out more about the school and ask any questions you may have. The video calls are either with our Registrar, Richard Midgley; Prep Headmaster, Ian Silk or Head Master, James Hodgson.

You may also like to take a look at our virtual school tour with the Head Master, James Hodgson.


We are still accepting registrations for new pupils as we have limited availability across some year groups for September 2020.

Online Prep Registration Form (Y3-Y8)                   Online Upper Registration Form (Y9-Y13)

After receipt of your online registration, our team will be in touch with details of the next steps.

We welcome boys for day and boarding places between the ages of 7 and 18. Our Prep School caters for boys from Year 3 (7+) until the end of Year 8 (12+) after which the boys move up to the Upper School.

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


As we are unable to invite pupils on-site to sit our entrance assessments these can be carried out remotely online.  Given the exceptional circumstances that we are currently in, for the time being, the assessments can be carried out at home under the supervision of parents/guardians.

We will also request a reference from the Head Teacher of your son’s current school.  We appreciate that this may take a little longer than usual, given current school closures.

Boys joining in September 2020

If your son has already been offered, and accepted, a place for September 2020, we will keep in touch with you via email. We hope that all induction events for the summer term will be able to go ahead as planned, but we will, of course, keep you updated. Again, please do not hesitate to email us on admissions@bedfordschool.org.uk with any queries.

We very much hope that we will be able to fully re-open the school soon. In the meantime, however, we hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy.
