We are in the process of compiling a ‘second list’ of Old Students who are interested in being awarded an Honorary Degree. If you were at Bedford Physical Training College / Bedford College of Physical Education qualifying with a Certificate of Education, you are entitled to apply.  
Currently 200+ former students have done so. Please do share this information with anyone who has not yet registered. 
In the NAME box below please identify the years you studied at Bedford. 
Please do not add your address to the comment as we do not publish comments with personal details.

I am still in contact with several of my mates and am about to sign in as a BPEOSA and pay my annual sub.
Thanks for all the organisation which has to go on "behind the scenes". Much appreciated.
