School Description

Bedales has been the liberal alternative since 1893 (co-ed since 1898). Age 3 to 18; 70% of seniors board. We are disciplined but not rule-bound (no uniform!); relaxed but respectful (everyone uses first names). Creative arts and outdoor work are strong. We develop independent thinkers, especially through our own courses that replace duller GCSEs. Our students are at ease in themselves.
