This year’s OB Careers Fair was once again a huge success. Now in its fourteenth year, over 60 OBs, parents and friends of the School came to give career guidance to over 200 boys and girls from Bedford School, Bedford Girls’ School, and Bedford Academy on their profession and industry. From Lawyers and Doctors to Engineers, Publishers and Investment Bankers, it was wonderful to have such a wide range of fields represented.

We are extremely grateful to who everyone who gave up their time to support this event.  As always, the students gained a great deal from this opportunity as they honed their networking skills, asked many interesting questions and broadened their horizons in a friendly, informal atmosphere.

The career representatives were extremely impressed with the students this year, and we’ve received some excellent positive feedback on their engagement:

“Thank you for a very stimulating evening! It was quite a privilege to hear intelligent young people articulate their ideas about their futures”.

If you couldn’t make it this year but are interested in getting involved, please do contact us at the OB Club ( and help inspire young people who might be considering your profession.
