What is Bedford School?
Bedford School is a leading all-boys independent boarding and day school for pupils aged 7-18 years.
At Bedford School, we seek to raise good people first and foremost; and then to allow them to flourish as academics, as sportsmen, as artists and above all as themselves, in a supportive and ambitious atmosphere.
Dedicated to nurturing a wide variety of individual interests and to developing them as far as boys can take them, the school is devoted to ensuring the boys love their childhood. We aim for balanced, outward-looking, forward-thinking, kind and sociable young men who are comfortable in their own skins.
From their earliest years boys are encouraged to become independent and lifelong learners, who understand the need to work hard, to take risks, be resilient and constantly strive to be the best that they can be. With a curriculum that extends well beyond national requirements, boys at Bedford School enjoy a balanced and varied choice of subjects at GCSE, A-level and in the International Baccalaureate Diploma. In 2022, boys once again excelled with a superb set of results and topflight university destinations both in the UK and at leading universities across the world.
Generous scholarships and bursaries are available to talented boys aged 13+ and 16+ on entry.
