Bedford School

With a whopping 1,100 pupils, all-boys Bedford is no secret – yet somehow it still manages to fly under the radar. We can’t quite pinpoint why: results are superb, facilities top-notch and the boys are level-headed, curious and pretty formidable on the rugby pitch. We’re very taken with this quietly impressive school – and give it full permission to shout louder and prouder about its awesome achievements....

    Bedford’s bursary provision is offered through the Harpur Trust, with up to 100 per cent fee remission available depending on means-tested financial need. Decisions are made based on academic performance and any other areas of recognised talent, with achievement and potential both considered.

    Bursarial support is available to entrants to Years 7, 9 and 12, as well as existing pupils entering these years. It is subject to annual financial review by the Harpur Trust. For more information, please see both the school website and the Harpur Trust site, which contains an example fee remission graph:
