St John Rigby, now an established Primary school boasting the town's top spot for attainment at KS2, has supported and advised many local Bedford schools during their transition to Primary.

'Our schools are happy exciting places to be. Our students are well cared for and achieve exceptional results'

Tony Bishop, Executive Principal

This September we are proud to launch St Joseph’s & St Gregory’s Nursery and Primary. Combining a middle and lower school creates a fantastically equipped Primary from successful, established schools, who both produced excellent results at key stage 1 and 2 last year.   

Our outstanding secondary school, St Thomas More, once again delivered fantastic results at both GCSE and A-level this year with 3 sixth form students securing Oxbridge places. St Thomas More provides excellent support for students of all abilities and is highly regarded in the local community.

Through Inspirit, The St Thomas More Teaching School, the Trust also leads in the training and professional development of staff across the local area.
