The Bedford Girls’ School Alumnae work alongside the Bedford High School Guild and the Dame Alice Harpur School Association to provide the vital link between the present and former pupils and staff of all three Schools. We aim to encourage and foster the development of Bedford Girls' School.
All pupils and staff of Bedford High School and the Dame Alice Harpur School are automatically members of Bedford Girls’ School Alumnae unless they choose not to be. All new pupils to Bedford Girls’ School gain membership on joining the school on a lifetime subscription basis.
We aim to build a structure which is capable of pro-actively reaching out to our alumnae in a number of different ways, beyond reunions at school, and offers a wider range of activities to benefit members of different ages in diverse communities.
We want our members to feel proud to be part of this group and hope that you will want to be actively involved.
This is just the start of developing our Alumnae and we will be adding new elements and a calendar of varied events, so please check in regularly to see what is going on.
