Education in Bedford is simple. The vision is to give children the best education possible, which means providing the best teachers, the best curriculum and the best classrooms.

But crucial to this is leadership. It is the leaders of the schools in Bedford Borough that make success a reality, by influencing their staff and local authority and by driving further development.

Bedford is already a top-ten performing area, so the challenge for leaders is to maintain this and improve performance still further.

In doing that, what makes Bedford stand out as a place to establish yourself as a leader, is the exceptional level of support you will receive from both the local authority and your peers.
