Eagle Connect is our online social and business networking hub, Designed to bring the Bedford School community closer together; it enables willing OBs, past and present Bedford parents, grandparents and staff to stay connected and support each other in all aspects of their life.
Eagle Connect is different to other networks like LinkedIn, because everyone who joins has a shared affection for Bedford School and its community. This means we can create a highly engaged and supportive online community of those who are willing to help each other, both socially and professionally. From finding accommodation on a gap year trip to giving advice to someone who wants to change their career, Eagle Connect is a forum for people to support each other.
