Bedales is one of the UK’s leading independent, co-educational day and boarding schools, comprising three schools set just one hour from London in 120 acres of South Downs National Park near Petersfield, Hampshire: Bedales Pre-prep, Dunannie (ages 3-8); Bedales Prep, Dunhurst (8-13); and Bedales Senior (13-18).
Established in 1893, Bedales was founded as an alternative to the mainstream 19th century British ‘public school’, and while much has changed, the contrast between Bedales and other schools remains strong.
Today, our approach draws on innovative traditions, with our own Bedales Assessed Courses (BACs) taught alongside five core I/GCSEs, project-based learning as a key part of our Block 3 (Year 9) curriculum and approaches to boarding, pastoral care and interpersonal relationships that break down unnecessary barriers between the generations, the sexes and the wider community.
While we take a kinder, more ‘child-centered’ approach, our students are ambitious and finish their journey with us to go on to some of the most prestigious institutions in the UK and internationally, joining a host of alumni who are distinctively Bedalian for life.
