Fortune World Leading Boarding School in 2023 and Independent Boys’ School of the Year 2021

Bedford School is a leading all-boys independent boarding and day school for pupils aged 7-18 years. Boys at Bedford School enjoy first-class facilities, an extensive 50-acre estate and a strong community connection within the vibrant market town of Bedford, at the heart of which it lies.

Bedford is a boarding school, first and foremost, with boarders and day boys alike benefitting from the strong boarding ethos. With 250 boys and around 40 staff living full-time on-site, the boarding community gives a heartbeat to the school in a way that nothing else can. The school lives, and permanently. It is our belief that every boy should be happy and successful, in that order, and our strong boarding ethos is fundamental to achieving this result.
