The Harpur Trust

The Harpur Trust

The Harpur Trust, established in 1566 using the legacy of Sir William Harpur, is one of the UK’s largest charities and everything it does aims to improve the lives of people living in the Borough of Bedford.

They do this by:

  • Providing and promoting education
  • Offering help and relief to anyone who is sick, in need, hardship or distress
  • Providing recreational facilities with a social welfare purpose.

Being part of the Trust allows Bedford Modern School to concentrate on providing the very best education for its pupils in line with our vision for the future.

The Harpur Trust owns, manages and supports four independent schools – Bedford Girls’ School, Bedford School, Bedford Modern School and Pilgrims Pre-Preparatory School. It also sponsors the Bedford Academy.
