At Bedford Road Collegiate students immediately find themselves a part of the Bedford Road Family. While there is a large enough student body to offer several course options, three levels of course difficulty and a complete range of extra-curricular offerings, Bedford is small enough for the development of a particularly warm and personal atmosphere in the school. Students and staff enjoy a special rapport that is best compared to that of a close family.
Bedford is a place where students from many diverse backgrounds come together to learn. We offer academic programming for all types of learners to meet their unique needs, including regular level courses, modified programs, LSWS and SAGE/Pre-IB programs for gifted learners.
Our school takes pride in its small, close-knit community. Students can enjoy many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom with programs such as Debate, SRC, Yearbook, Pom, Musical, GSA, Girls' Groups, Big Sisters, NorWester's, cultural activities such as First Nation drumming group, smudge and sweat opportunities, as well as numerous athletic teams.
Pre-Engineering is a unique and innovative specialized program that provides students with a practical, hands-on experience and problem solving skills in an interactive state-of-the-art lab environment. Students will learn design fundamentals and work with robotic, pneumatic, electrical, and other technologies to acquire knowledge, skills and attributes that will be used to communicate and document the solution to an authentic engineering problem.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a two-year program that starts in Grade 11 for students who are academically motivated, service orientated and who desire the rigorous international curriculum that focuses on our role as citizens in a global society. The International Baccalaureate Organization's goal is to provide students with the values and opportunities that will enable them to develop sound judgment, think creatively and critically, and respect others in our global community.
THE BRIT CLASSIC is one of Canada's premier basketball tournaments and is a highlight of the school year for the students at Bedford Road Collegiate. It is a time when students from all groups in the school are drawn together. No longer just a basketball tournament, but a culture of volunteering and excitement that brings students, teachers and alumni together.
