Support for home based learners from early years up to GCSE
PLACE is a Bedford Local Authority support service for home educating families managed by Biddenham International School and Sports College.  To be eligible to register with the scheme, children should be Bedford Borough residents on the elective home education (EHE) register of the Bedford Borough local authority.

The PLACE  Progamme  provides significant support for PLACE-registered GCSE learners, including part-time specialist support for a number of GCSE subjects and entrance for public examinations.

PLACE also runs a busy enrichment programme for enrolled youngsters from ages four to sixteen and, in addition, provides guidance and signposting for special educational needs issues.
