The Government and Ofqual have now released details of how this summer exams will be awarded. Teaching staff will be expected to submit grades to exam boards and provide rank order for students within each grade. The grade submitted should be “the grade they would have been most likely to achieve had exams gone ahead”. Teaching staff are NOT permitted to inform students or parents of these grades before the results are released in August. The submitted grade will also take into consideration any access arrangements for individual students. Further information can be accessed here Second letter regarding exams Summer 2020 030420.doc and one to students from Sally Collier (chief regulator at Ofqual) Letter_to_students_-_Summer_2020_grading
Due to government advice on 23rd March restricting movement, we have taken the difficult decision to close the school gates early for the Easter holidays. Lessons will continue to be delivered remotely as planned until the end of school on 27th March. We wish everyone a happy and safe Easter; our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the Bedstone family. We will keep you updated via email, the website and social media.
Any enquiries or requests can be made via email to email@example.com or leave a message on the school answer machine. We will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
Our Junior School pupils wanted to sing some songs to share with you and in our community – we that hope you enjoy them 🙂

Following last night’s Government advice, Bedstone College will close to day students from end of school, Friday 20th March. Provision will still be in place for boarders until the scheduled end of term, Friday 27th March. Children of key workers are welcome to join boarders from Monday 23rd March until the end of term for supervised sessions. Teachers will set work remotely as per the usual college timetable. Please keep an eye on social media and this website for further updates.
At Bedstone College the safety of our students and wider community is our number one priority. We are monitoring the international and local situation carefully. We regularly check Public Health England (PHE), World Health Organisation (WHO), National Health Service (NHS) and Government advice. The College’s Senior Management Team meet daily to ensure the actions we are taking to safeguard our student’s health are in line with official advice and appropriate for Bedstone College.
Overseas students returning from high risk areas (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-specified-countries-and-areas/covid-19-specified-countries-and-areas-with-implications-for-returning-travellers-or-visitors-arriving-in-the-uk) are being asked to self-isolate until they have been 14 days symptom free within the UK. Any students exhibiting Coronavirus symptoms (dry persistent cough and temperature) are asked to stay away from school for 7 days or until symptoms subside. Good hand hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19 and the washing of hands thoroughly and often combined with the “catch it, bin it, kill it” strategy is emphasised and re-enforced by all staff.
School will remain open to all students whilst staffing levels allow and Government advice supports this decision. In the event that school has to close to “day” students, remote teaching will be deployed and students and teaching staff are all ready to use google classroom and other on-line resources to ensure the education of our students remains as continuous as possible.
We are doing everything within our power, given the constant changing circumstances, to ensure our students have a continuity of education and care.
Unfortunately, due to the evolving situation with Covid-19, all sports fixtures this week have now been cancelled.
The U15 rugby match v Bishops Castle this afternoon has been cancelled. The U11/13 cross country at Shrewsbury High on 18th March is also cancelled.
The U18 football tomorrow is now a home match. Usual finish time.
Sadly, the Junior School games Tag Rugby Finals, due to take place tomorrow, 3rd March, in Shrewsbury have been postposed due to waterlogged pitches. They are now planned for the morning of Tuesday 24th March.
