Thank you for your interest in Bedford Modern School.  We understand that choosing an independent education for your son or daughter is a significant decision and we are here to help by answering any questions you may have and guiding you through the admissions process to make it as smooth as possible.

BMS is a co-educational day school for boys and girls aged between 7 and 18. The main points of entry are in Year 3, Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12. Entry into other year groups is dependent on availability. The Junior School accommodates students from Years 3 to 6 in a purpose built environment and the Sixth Form centre, the Rutherford Building, provides a dedicated space for our Sixth Form Students.

It is important that you make the right choice for your family and we recommend that you visit us and see the outstanding facilities for yourself and experience the warm and caring atmosphere which pervades every part of school life.

We run a variety of open events during the year ranging from open mornings where you can see the School on a normal working day; our annual Open Day which is an opportunity to hear an address from the Headmaster or the Head of the Junior School and see the School buzzing with energy as well as evening events which give information specifically about our Junior School or Sixth Form.  

Alternatively, you are very welcome to make an appointment to visit the school at a more convenient time to suit you.

We are here to help, so please feel free to contact Pauline Heappey, Admissions Manager by email at or telephone 01234 332690.
