About the School
Bedstone College is an independent boarding school. Students aged 9 year-old or above are offered the opportunity to become a full boarders in one of the 4 boarding houses.
Adequate support is offered to sixth formers. For example, Bedstone believes that the traditional A level route to University is not the best option for some students. Therefore, students taking the Occupational Gateway programme will be able to study within the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (CP), taking a mixture of Diploma subjects, BTECS, work experience and projects that can lead to university or straight into work.
Also, the University Of Choice programme is offered to eligible students who would get a refund of £5000 if they fail to secure an offer.

There are over 15 acres of playing fields and some outstanding sporting facilities include the fully equipped gym and dance studio. The wider college grounds also provide challenging terrain and are the venue for the annual Midlands ISA cross-country championships.
