Tartan date: 01/05/2009
Registration date: 16 June 2010

Restrictions: Yes. A corporate tartan to be used by and for the Bedford Academy.

Registration notes: The tartan was designed for the new girls' uniform at The Bedford Academy (previously the John Bunyan Upper School before being re-developed as an Academy). The tartan kilt is intended to be smart and a manifestation of the new ethos at the Academy. The colours were specifically chosen so as to be distinctly different from the predecessor school and for the colours not to be similar to any other local school.

Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
