Every year the school community celebrates the educational principles of founder John Badley through an annual event: the 'Badley Weekend'. 

Staff, students and parents from the three Bedales Schools participate in a range of events and celebrations – including working together on projects for the Badley Whole School Effort across the campus in the spirit of the school motto “Work of Each for Weal of All” where activities can include tree planting and lake dredging. The Bedales Community Festival takes place the day after and is a themed celebratory event.
