Welcome to Bedford Free School

We are a state-funded independent secondary school serving the communities of Bedford and Kempston. We teach students from Year 7 - Year 11. Working with you, the local community, our aim is to improve the prospects of local students through a supportive learning environment, expanded curriculum, and top class teaching.

"We believe that given the right circumstances, all children are capable of extraordinary things"
