On Monday the Y10 cricket team headed to the District Cricket Finals Day. They took on Stratton in the semi-final, who they comfortably beat after bowling first. The final was a much closer contest, as the boys took on Sharnbrook. Mark Rutherford batted first and posted what looked like a very good 116. Sharnbrook stuttered early on but then made an excellent comeback to take the game into the final over. It went all the way to the final ball, with Sharnbrook needing 5 to win, they only achieved a single, so Mark Rutherford won the game by 4 runs!

A fantastic achievement for all of the boys involved!


Congratulations to Miss Samosa who took home the Education Achievement Award last night at the Bedfordshire Local Heroes Awards 2017.

Preparing Students for the Future

The Annual Participation and NEET Report for Bedford Borough 2016/17 shows that Mark Rutherford has had a decline in the number of NEET students (not in education, employment or training) and we are now ranked in the lowest group in Bedford Borough. 

Goldington Ward, where many of our students originate from, is in the top 4 wards with the highest percentage of NEETs, making our positive outcome even more remarkable.

This low figure of NEETs is a culmination of many factors that have enabled our young people (who are academic age 16-17) to contribute positively to society; curriculum opportunities, information, advice and guidance, having positive relationships, enjoyment of school, pastoral support, good outcomes, focused interventions, and a wide variety of extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities to participate in.


Mission Statement

We believe that every child is unique.  Our aim is to provide broad, balanced, personalised learning experiences that will enable them to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and to achieve economic well being.
