Founded in 1550, Bedford school is an independent school for boys run by the Harper trust charity. Apart from its excellent academic record, the school is well known for sports development, especially its former pupils including the runner, Harold Abrahams and more recently the current England cricket captain, Alistair Cook.

When the impressive Great Hall floor in the main building needed renovating, the school called for the expertise of local wood-floor craftsman Mick Thompson, whose long standing reputation and connections with the school ensured that the work would be carried out within the required time and budget in addition to a high standard.

Mr Thompson chose to apply 3 coats of Pallmann Extreme lacquer for its hard wearing quality and stunning finish appearance. The primer coat was Pall-X 325 which provided a full bodied base for the system.

Remarkably he carried out all 600 square metres of the work himself, a testament to his hard work and the ease of application of the Pallmann system.
