What the school says...

We recognise that the world of education is in upheaval, and are undertaking a transformation to ensure that Bedstone’s identity is repositioned to take advantage of fast-emerging opportunities now and in the future, whilst retaining the caring ethos and focus on safeguarding for which it is well known.

Our purpose is to deliver an educational experience with academic rigour, treating everyone individually and equally to be equipped to thrive in contemporary society. Our aim is to develop students with the intellectual inquisitiveness to prosper, as well as the emotional strength, community awareness and moral compass to become the very best global citizens that they can be.

Expectations are high. We are keen to ensure that academic success is one of the key features of the school. Our pupils will realise their full potential. By the time they leave, their results will ensure that they are capable of taking up places at the top Universities or on the most competitive corporate apprenticeship schemes.

Kindness is at the heart of the Bedstone Family – the school motto, “Caritas”, literally translated means charity. We value tolerance towards each other; being confident enough to respect each other’s opinions and views – putting others before ourselves.

We seek to inspire and nurture every student, from the youngest in our dedicated Junior School to the oldest in our Senior School or Sixth Form, helping to build on their unique strengths and leave Bedstone as well-rounded individuals.
