Upon entering Bedford Road, students and visitors alike quickly sense our schools abounding history. They are met by walls of hallways lined with photos of graduating classes, staff, and Student Representative Councils. They see trophy cases stocked with awards, and an Honour Roll of Bedford Road's 55 war dead. In all, tens of thousands of men and women are permanently and personally associated with the best of Bedford's academic, social, and sporting traditions. Ask any of our current students and staff, and they'll tell you that they feel it, too. And like those who came before them, they wish to add their chapter to the schools honoured past.
Bedford is home to almost 600 students and staff. We offer programs suited to every type of learner. More and more programs are added each year. We offer programs for gifted and talented learners (the SAGE Program, only offered at three highschools in Saskatoon), a full range of academic courses (some of which are unique to Bedford), as well as many experiential programs in areas such as the arts, woods, athletics, textiles, food, theatre arts, choral, dance, writing, esthetics, and film-making. Every year since 1968, our students and staff have hosted the Bedford Road Invitational Basketball Tournament (BRIT), one of Canada's best-known high school boys' basketball tournaments.
Bedford Road is one of only two schools in Saskatoon to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme -- or I.B. Programme, for short. It is an internationally-recognized academic program that brings a certain global-mindedness to student learning. It is a two year program that begins in Grade 11 and offers six academic classes wrapped around a core area that includes Theory of Knowledge, Creativity Action Service, and an Extended Essay. Students who are interested are recommended to embark on a IB Foundations program in grades 9 and 10. There are pre-requisite courses necessary to satisfy admission requirements.
