Other Information: Bedford School is a boarding and day school for boys aged 7-18 years, providing our international students with a unique opportunity to spend time in a UK boarding school with UK students and mix with other nationalities. We have approximately 260 UK and international boarders which represents around 25% of the school community. Our international students come from over 23 different countries, including Spain, France, Poland, Germany, Russia and Hong Kong. Our boarding houses are designed in the Senior School to involve boys of all ages living together and staff are committed to promoting the highest level of student welfare in a warm and friendly environment. The School is set in parkland on an extensive estate in the centre of Bedford, a market town just 50 miles north of London and within easy reach of its major airports. Life at Bedford School is very full and, from their earliest years, boys are encouraged to take full advantage of the endless opportunities open to them. There is an easy mix of day boys, weekly and full boarders, all of whom enjoy outstanding facilities and a full social life. The School’s highly qualified teaching staff are selected on their ability to communicate and inspire. The result is a vibrant, stimulating environment, where boys can be happy, grow in self-confidence, thrive academically, and make the most of the wide range of opportunities on offer. There are six boarding houses for the Upper School located on or close to the School estate. Boarders at the Preparatory School have their own boarding house, Eagle House, which is located on the grounds of the Prep School. Boarding at Bedford School has been rated as ‘outstanding?by Ofsted following our recent boarding inspection. 'The School is held in high regard by parents and particularly by boarders who believe they have been enabled to have a most positive boarding experience that supports them in their academic endeavour. This arises out of an all round excellent performance of managers and staff in using the very good resources effectively to provide boarders comfort and a beneficial environment for their care and education. Of particular remark is success in instilling values that allow boarders of diverse background to relate well to each other and thrive in the School’s community.' Academic excellence is our primary objective and the School's success is demonstrated by consistently high standards in GCSE, A level and IB examinations. The Bedford curriculum, extending well beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum, is structured to provide a balanced and varied choice of subjects that will stir the potential in each pupil and challenge his individual strengths. Both inside and out of the academic arena, boys are challenged through discussion, careful and knowledgeable specialist teaching, visits, lectures, mentoring, tutoring and prep. They are prepared with care for examinations and university, and are encouraged to develop independent and inquiring minds. Excellence is celebrated throughout the School, not least in the provision of its resources. Every department is well equipped, the whole School is computer networked, the new library is perhaps the best of its kind in the country, and the arts facilities are outstanding. Great emphasis is placed upon good subject teaching. Class sizes are small and a strong partnership exists between families and the School with our staff always accessible to pupils and parents.
