All pupils can get involved in Bedford School’s vibrant drama scene, whether on stage or backstage in one of our big productions or with their housemates in the ever popular house drama competition.

Our stunning theatre, The Quarry Theatre at St. Luke’s, which opened in 2015 includes a beautiful 286-seat auditorium and an all-purpose studio, both fully rigged with lighting and sound.


The Quarry Theatre is both a theatre for the school and the town; offering both our own in-house school productions as well as the best in touring theatre, comedy, dance and live music.
