At Focus School Biggleswade Campus, we take a forward-looking and pioneering approach to education. While academic excellence has and always will be a priority, we challenge outdated educational practices with our Self-Directed Learning program.

Our schools offer achievement, opportunity and professional challenge to our students within a supportive environment. The students have a passion and desire to excel in learning.
