At a meeting of the Governing Body on Monday 18th January 2016, Governors agreed that Bedford Road Lower School will extend its age range from a 4-9 years Lower School to become a 4-11 years Primary School.  The change will be implemented in September 2017. In September 2017, year 4 children will have the option to remain at the school and become a new year 5. In September 2018, year 5 children will remain and become a new year 6.

Bedford Road Lower School

Welcome to our school website.

Bedford Road Lower School is situated in the heart of Kempston. Our school is a happy and thriving lower school for children aged 4 to 9 years. We currently have 290 children on roll with 10 classes. In addition to our creative and well-qualified teaching staff we have excellent teaching assistants who work across the school supporting and enhancing children’s learning. All our staff take huge pride in their work and in doing the best job they can to support the children’s education and social development.

We are very proud of the successes of our school – the excellent relationships we have with families and friends within our community and of the governors, staff and children who work hard to make our school a happy place where we can learn together in friendship. We hope that the close cooperation and partnership between school and home will enhance and support your child’s development throughout these important lower school years.

Our most recent Ofsted report highlights the following strengths of our school:

"The school’s range of themes in subjects is innovative and exciting and promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness very well."


"Leaders, managers and governors have been successful in driving improvement, so that standards continued to rise and teaching to improve since previous inspection."


"The curriculum prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain."


We very much hope you find this website useful and informative. Please feel welcome to contact us if you need any further information or would like to visit the school. We will be pleased to give whatever assistance we can.
