OUR YEAR IN NUMBERS
1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022
As the immediate burdens of Covid began to recede, we continued to have a significant impact in support of our charitable objects this year.
Our continued commitment to high quality education was recognised, with Bedford School being awarded Independent Boys’ School of the Year 2021, Bedford Modern School once again rated excellent in all areas in its Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspection, and a successful end to the first decade at Bedford Girls’ School under its new Head. This progress was underpinned by strong academic results at all our schools.
We were also able to offer a further 203 bursaries to enable young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to access our education.
A particular highlight of the year was the completion of our strategy review. We set a new long-term strategic goal to invest in people’s futures, and a new long-term community focus on children and young people facing disadvantage.
We also progressed two exciting new initiatives to support this aim, while continuing our longstanding commitments to local community needs, high quality education and a generous bursary programme.
