It is beyond the classroom that a student’s character is really developed. Here at Bedstone, there are so many interests that can be pursued, some of which will become lifelong passions. These include horseriding, the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, drama, mountain biking, pottery, embroidery, bridge, dance or chess, for example. The College offers a large and diverse range of activities supported by clubs and societies.
In addition to the many activities that happen within the campus, full use is made of the many facilities in the immediate area such as the famous mountain bike trail through the local forests, the dry ski slopes, the skating rink and the rock climbs that are within easy reach. The theatres in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Stratford upon Avon are used to the full and the natural countryside that is all around which makes the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme such a popular activity.
Further afield there are the biennual ski-trips; the European History, Business Studies, Modern Language, English and Science trips as well as the usual curriculum trips for Geography.
Every week there is an opportunity for senior college students to visit the beautiful medieval market town of Ludlow for shopping and sightseeing.
Bedstone has a very active charity committee and all students play their part in supporting a wide range of good causes. Much of the work is directed towards the local community of which Bedstone is so much a part.
There is a full programme of activities within the College on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and an exciting programme of weekend activities. The senior College has Saturday school with lessons in the morning and games matches in the afternoon, plus a full Sunday activity programme which includes trips to theme parks, quad biking, paint balling and less energetic activities such as shopping and cinema trips and even visits to coal mines!
