Year 9 Options Evening – Thursday 21st March
We work in partnership with local families to serve the communities of Bedford and Kempston providing an academic, focussed well-rounded education to pupils aged 11-16.
We begin each day with a morning address, where we reflect on our shared values or respect, honest, and high-expectations while reminding our whole community that we strive to go the extra mile. Our school values hard work, routines and structure, and hence we have impeccable behaviour.
For example, pupils arrive at their lessons carrying their equipment for the lesson so that there is no wasted time while they get ready. We supplement our very academic curriculum with 30 minutes of group reading of a classic work of literature daily, and we supervise prep, so that pupils can start homework or further study.
Working with the community, we therefore strive to maximise the prospects of young people through an expanded academic
curriculum, the entitlement to great experiences, very high expectations of conduct and behaviour, and the very best teaching. We expect our pupils to attend university and we equip them with the knowledge and dispositions to be able to do so, while making a difference in their communities.
Our pupils are entitled to access, in Matthew Arnold’s words the best that has been thought and said. We structure everything we do around the belief that our pupils deserve the very best, and we deliver the best possible curriculum. Our staff believe that “if it is not good enough for our own children, it is not good enough”. Hence we use the best PE facilities in Bedford to supplement our rooftop extension, deliver extra-curricular activities during the school day so that everyone can participate, and equip our classrooms with all that is needed to ensure our pupils become world-beaters!
To fit everything in, we run an extended school day from 8.25am-4pm, and have supportive catch-up sessions and extra teaching that goes on beyond that. The school is open and supervised for quiet work from 8am-6pm.
Nothing, however, can match a visit to the school. Please contact us to arrange a tour, where you can see everything. We believe you will be blown away by what you see!
With very best wishes,
