Outdoor Education

We have a well developed program of Outdoor Education which gives each child a variety of enriching, developmental experiences.

For Year 7 students we have arranged for a local two-day outdoor adventure along with a three-day residential in Oxfordshire. When the pupils are in Year 8, The Outward Bound Trust in Aberdovey has been chosen as our provider for a six-day course. We have every confidence in these companies and their ability to provide the highest levels of safety and care through a quality program of outdoor activities. The courses are geared to understand the needs of the individual child, whilst promoting learning through exciting and challenging activities.

Here at Bedford Modern School we have a great belief in Outdoor Education and its value for the developing child. The benefits are well documented and can help create a more balanced, confident individual, supporting an enhanced classroom performance, better relationship building and assistance in furthering later ambitions.
