Detailed Description

The School estate combines traditional architecture with state of the art buildings to provide a superb choice of historic and contemporary settings. The immaculately groomed tree-lined grounds with their shrubs and borders provide a glorious backdrop for photographs. Bedford school offers a choice of superb rooms, all of which are licensed for civil ceremonies. The Great Hall, located on the first floor of the main building, can seat up to 220 people for banqueting. The Hall provides a unique and elegant setting for a wedding with four large stone arched windows that flood the room with light and provide a pleasing vista across the School playing fields. The sophisticated light wood interior of the Great Hall delivers a simple elegant setting with the flexibility for you to add your own decorations and adorn the room to your taste. The award winning Music School was opened in 2006. Renowned for its stunning architecture, the building houses the magnificent red Recital Hall with its floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Schools playing fields and cricket pavilion. With a backdrop of the adjacent 19th Century Chapel, this is a truly dramatic location for your civil service, seating up to 120.
