Bedford Girls’ School is a new independent day school for girls aged 7–18. Formed by the merger of two distinct and respected Harpur Trust girls’ schools: Dame Alice Harpur School and Bedford High School for Girls. Our new beginnings build firmly upon their rich heritage and it is our ambition that Bedford Girls’ School will bring the relevance and commitment of an all-girls’ education to a new generation of women.
We believe that Bedford Girls' School is an exceptional girls' school - a school recognised as being forward thinking, dynamic and exciting. You will feel the energy and enthusiasm of the learning and teaching as soon as you walk through the front doors of our new school. We anticipate that you will overhear lessons peppered with laughter, that you will discover success of every kind being celebrated and a strong sense of 'can do' exuding from both the girls and the staff. Most importantly of all, you will discover an ethos of kindness, an environment where everyone is made to feel welcome, a school where all our pupils are made to feel special.
We hope this website gives you a taste of what Bedford Girls' School will be like. To really get to know us better we encourage you to come and visit us. We would be proud to share our vision with you and hope your experience of Bedford Girls’ School will inspire you to join us.
