Senior Preparatory


"The opportunity to educate other people's children is a rare privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and success in their adult lives. At Reddam, Bedfordview we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our students feel valued.

School should be fun and happy children are more likely to be successful. We see it as our responsibility to bring out our students’ talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality so that students are ready to make a really positive contribution to their wider community."


- Stephen Hazley, Senior Preparatory Headmaster
