Let’s Get Physical

Bedford High School has a proud history of sporting excellence.
We have a great tradition of favourites such as football, rugby, hockey and netball but we’re also keen for our students to try a wider range of sports.
Students from Bedford have gone on to play a variety of sports professionally and at the highest possible level. The PE department has excellent facilities including a large sports hall, gym with five trampolines. We have a full size astro turf for multi-sport use and a large field with football, rugby, 
softball, rounders’ pitches. Our athletics’ area includes a running track with field event areas including a long jump pit.
