Polam School is a small, caring and happy independent school for children aged 12 months to 9 years. Occupying two large Victorian houses on a leafy avenue in the heart of Bedford, we provide a unique home from home learning environment where every child is known by every member of staff.
The School has its own Nursery which is open throughout the year and offers a homely, safe and caring environment. Parents can book half day sessions, school day (8.30am-4pm) or can add wrap around care from 7.30am-6pm. Children in the nursery benefit from weekly music lessons led by our specialist music teacher and we introduce languages such as French and Spanish from the age of 2. At the age of 3 years, all children take part in weekly swimming lessons.
Rated Outstanding in both School and Nursery, Polam offers traditional values in a homely atmosphere with exceptionally small class sizes and dedicated staff who are passionate about education. The School specializes in French, Music and Games which are taught to children as young as two and all children have weekly swimming lessons from the age of three. Extended care is available with a breakfast club from 7.30am including cereals and toast, and an after-school club which runs until 6pm and includes a light tea. All meals are freshly prepared on site by our own catering team.
