Choosing the perfect school is a life-forming and life-enhancing decision. You will want to be confident that your choice is the right one and we are here to support you through that decision making period.

As the only academically selective all-girls’ school in Bedfordshire we offer a unique learning environment. Our philosophy is to be innovative, outward looking and open minded. From Years 3 to Sixth Form it is our belief that learning should be exciting and spark a life-long desire to engage in the wonder of the world around us.

Sitting on the edge of Bedford town centre on the banks of the River Great Ouse, Bedford Girls’ School is ideally placed for families from Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Milton Keynes, East Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire, with a number of bus and train routes providing easy and accessible transportation links for our students.

Each year we hold our main assessment period in the January before the September entry point. However, we appreciate that families may make plans at other times and we hold regular late assessment sessions throughout the year where there are spaces available. To find out more please get in touch with the Admissions team. 

We welcome families who are relocating to the area and will coordinate with their current schools to hold remote assessments if candidates are unable to come into school. We are here to help support families with their move to the area.

If you are interested in applying, please don’t hesitate to contact the Admissions team for further details by telephone on 01234 361918 or by emailing [email protected].

We look forward to welcoming you to the school.
