Polam school was founded in 1923 and moved to Lansdowne Road, Bedford in the 1950s. The school was subsequently sold to Cognita in the 2000s.
Another Bedford pre-prep Acorn School (founded in 1985) became part of the Cognita Group and merged into Polam School in April 2009. For a brief period the school became known as Polam Oaks, before going back to its roots and returning to Polam School in March 2012.
The school today
Polam School is owned and operated by Cognita. It is an independent primary school in Bedford for boys and girls aged 12 months to 9 years.
Specialist teaching is delivered in small groups with a broad-based curriculum which introduces subjects such as Music, French, Spanish, Drama, swimming and PE to children as young as three years old.
The school is primarily based in two refurbished Victorian houses, but there is an indoor gym and a swimming pool for the children to use.
