Bedford School

Combined school for boys in Bedford, Bedfordshire

“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. In this all-boys environment, boys can develop without inhibition and awkwardness, and feel able and keen to participate to the fullest.

Boarders lie at the heart of the school’s warm and inclusive community. In the Prep School, Eagle House caters for the youngest boarders (aged 9-13), while six Victorian villas offer Upper School boys a true ‘home from home’. Day and boarding houses are paired and participate jointly in house activities and competitions, adding to the camaraderie and sense of community that so many visitors comment on and admire. 


When it is time to take the next step, each boy leaves as a good man, secure in his values, happy and ready to take his place in the world.
