Choosing the right educational pathway for your child is an important decision. At BGI we combine traditional values within a modern teaching environment and employ the Diamond System in selected subjects – allowing our pupils the social benefits of co-education with focussed learning within single sex lessons.
Our pupils are each uniquely different but share the same passion for life and learning and its those qualities that gain the most from their journey with us.
Open Morning – September 25th 2021
Our next Open Morning is on Saturday 25th September from 10am to Midday at both our Kimbolton Road site and Shakespeare Road site. Please contact Philippa Abruzzese to register.
Sixth Form (2022 entry)
There will be an opportunity during the open morning for year 11 students and parents to attend a presentation about life in the Sixth Form at Bedford Greenacre.
This will take place in the gym at the Shakespeare Road site from 12.15-13.00 where prospective year 12 students will hear about how we will guide and support them and there will also be a chance to talk to subject specialists and collect further information about our various courses.
