Academic Success

The capacity of Bedales students to think independently and creatively, and to deliver strong A Level grades makes them attractive to a broad range of top universities. Bedales students have a reputation with universities for their independence of mind and have frequently offered unusual academic and personal profiles in their application for courses.

Our top higher education destinations are a diverse mix of Oxbridge, Russell Group universities and art colleges. Bedales students therefore arrive at a similar place to those in more formal education settings. They have just taken a different route.

Many of our alumni remain actively engaged with the school, returning to offer advice and support for the students following in their footsteps. We make the most of Bedalians’ willingness to learn from each other and to share experiences.
