Bedford Girls’ School (BGS) Sports Department continues to go from strength to strength with the School Sport Magazine ranking BGS as the 4th best all girls’ independent school for sport in 2017. The list reflects competitive achievement in a range of disciplines throughout last year and honours those schools that take competitions especially seriously.
The school has placed 10th on the list of all co-educational and single sex independent schools, rising one place from 2016. Most notably, BGS is also ranked as the second best girls’ day independent school in the country, which does not include sports scholarships. Overall, this is an outstanding achievement against sports specialist schools.
Noticeable achievements include becoming county champions in netball, lacrosse and hockey across various age groups, to the U13 hockey team claiming a runners up spot at the National Finals and the U13 rounders team becoming the National School Champions.
Mrs Axford, Director of Sport, adds: “As a School we strive to provide an outstanding sporting education across all age groups. Equally important is the environment where our girls can truly develop, improve and enjoy their sport. Our dedicated sports department plays a pivotal role in teaching each girl to be resilient and build self-confidence.”
