Bedford Free School

We are a small, intimate school, where teachers and students know each other and look out for each other.

We have a clear vision to become a centre of educational and personal excellence for students between Year 7 and Year 11, playing a key role at the heart of the community we serve. Since opening in September 2012 we have created a culture in which the highest expectations and aspirations surround all of our students, delivering on the rightful demand from parents in Bedford and Kempston for an excellent education opportunity for their children.

Our School has a positive, ‘can-do’ culture built around…
• Respect for all
• Honesty from all
• High expectations

BFS’s GCSE results place us amongst the top schools in the area. We are unashamedly ambitious for our students and we proudly offer a rigorous, academic curriculum supported by strong discipline which means our teachers can concentrate on teaching. Students’ behaviour is impeccable.

Our policies make teaching manageable – for example we require no marking of student books at all. We are open to visitors and love showing people round, so get in touch!

If you are an excellent professional and support our vision and values of Respect, Honesty and High Expectations we would love to hear from you.
