Bedford Girls’ School is a vibrant 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. Since our foundation, we have built firmly upon their rich heritage and are working towards our ambition to become one of the country's foremost and respected girls' schools.
As an exceptional, forward thinking, dynamic and exciting place of learning, we place pupils at the heart of all we do. Our expert understanding of the unique needs and ambitions of girls and young women imbues us with the ability to ensure everyone reaches their potential academically, socially, ethically and individually.
Situated on the banks of the River Great Ouse in Bedford we are equal distance from the M1 and A1, and easily accessible to girls coming from Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, East Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
In addition to our regular Open House events, we actively welcome parents and girls to visit for a tour of the school and an insight into what makes our school community so special.
We hope this website gives you a taste of what Bedford Girls' School has to offer and we would be proud to share our vision, ethos and atmosphere with you first hand.
