As a secondary school, we now only usually admit students into Year 7 each year – although places do occasionally arise in other year groups. If you are interested in applying for a place at Bedford Free School for your child, you need to do so through your Local Authority.
Bedford Free School has the whole community of Bedford and Kempston at its heart, and this is reflected in our Admissions Policy. Anyone in Bedford Borough and beyond can apply, including Bedford and Kempston.
Wherever you live, you need to apply through your Local Authority’s usual application process. If you live in Bedford Borough, you can apply online here.» Learn more
We’re holding Open Events throughout the year for all parents and children interested in finding out more, and seeing what we’ve got to offer.
And you are always welcome to have a personal tour of the School with our Principal, so you can see it in action during the day – just call us on 01234 332299 or email us to arrange a convenient time.» Learn more
