Welcome to Bedford Free School

A fond farewell to our first Year 11

"Our Year 11 students have now completed their GCSE examinations, I couldn’t be more proud of them. The mature and determined way in which they have approached these examinations has been exemplary. They thoroughly deserve the extended Summer break that they are about to begin. The Leavers’ Ball on Thursday evening  was a fabulous evening. Moreover, I wish them every success with their futures"

Mr Burrows, Head of Year 11

First BFS Art and Design Exhibition

Took place last night with some truely outstanding pieces...
