A boy’s story is the best that is ever told.

Charles Dickens

We believe this is true at Bedford Prep School and we work hard to allow the boys the physical space and intellectual freedom to create their own stories and develop their own talents to the full.

We want our boys to embrace each new chapter, whether it involves the thrill of scientific discovery, creating inspirational music or painting a masterpiece, unlocking the secrets of a new language, solving a complex mathematical conundrum, playing heroically on the sports field or writing their own exciting adventure stories.

We are open-minded, as long as they try their hardest – and we will fully support them in their endeavours.

A tour around the estate will reveal a school that buzzes with activity, where boys are stimulated by passionate, first class teaching by teachers who care deeply about their pupils and their adventures in learning.

As well as being busy, we’re ambitious for our boys in the provision we make for them to develop and enjoy new experiences.

Each experience allows them to explore, succeed and excel. Each fresh page they turn gives them the confidence and ability to embrace the challenges of an exciting, diverse, fast-changing world.

Here at Bedford Prep School we strive to instil in the boys a sense of awe and wonder at the world, and of joy in their own achievements and those of others. We feel school should be a place where boys are allowed to thoroughly enjoy their childhood, make friends for life, and get the occasional muddy knee.

I would be delighted to show you around our school, so you too can meet the Bedford boys and listen to their unfolding stories.
