We aim to support and encourage our boys to explore the world and all that it has to offer; this is also true beyond the classroom.

There are endless opportunities for the boys to discover their individual talents and passions and develop them.

The arts thrive at Bedford School and boys can get involved in a full and varied programme of Music, Art and Drama.

In sport, boys are encouraged to take an interest, whatever their level of ability, for the self-motivation, camaraderie and teamwork it encourages and develops.

Boys can also take part in a wide and diverse range of creative, sporting, academic and general interest extracurricular activities. We actively encourage boys (though most need little encouragement) to participle in a new activity each term when they join us.

All offer boys an ideal way to discover new interests or unsuspected talents.

Creative Arts

The creative arts thrive outside the classroom. In the theatre, music school, art studios and beyond, we offer boys the opportunity to explore their individual creativity.
