Bedford Modern School

Bedford Modern School is an acknowledged centre of excellence. We are proud of our academic standards, our wide range of cultural and sporting opportunities and our exceptionally caring pastoral structure. Our greatest “value-added” factors are not so much in the excellent examination results the students achieve, but also the confidence and self esteem a Bedford Modern education imparts. Our students will leave us able to stride confidently into a world where their talents will be recognised and fulfilled. Pastoral care of the individual is at the heart of what we are as a School and pupils are happy here because there is a common sense of being involved, supported and successful. Bedford Modern School marked ten years of co-education in 2013 and celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2014
