Bedford Greenacre Independent School is taking shape and is set to open for the autumn term

Bedford Greenacre Independent School is taking shape on a new 40-acre site in the county town’s Manton Heights area. Created after a merger of Rushmoor and St Andrew’s schools, it is set to welcome 690 pupils, from reception to sixth form, in the autumn term. “The project is developing at pace,” says Headteacher Ian Daniel. “The car park for staff and the community is already in service and the modular structure will begin to take shape over the next few weeks.

“We’re thrilled with the positive reactions from our local community about our transformational project so far, and delighted to have reached the all-important milestone of funding completion.”

Bedford Greenacre Independent School was created in 2021, following the merger of Rushmoor and St Andrews, and currently operates across two sites in the town. Bedford Greenacre will replace the two sites. “It’s been a team effort from our experts in construction, banking, real estate, charity and legal planning, as well as working closely with the planners at Marrons and, of course, the team at Bedford Greenacre,” says Joseph Soul, partner at law firm Shakespeare Martineau, who led the deal.
