Welcome from the Headteacher
Thank you for visiting our website. I do hope it will give you a flavour of our school. The school has a distinct and very clear ethos, which is to provide all of our learners whatever their starting point, with a fully rounded learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom.
We are proud to reflect the population of our local community, with a good mix of boys and girls from all backgrounds in our borough. Our diversity is one of our strengths.
Our academic curriculum is at the heart of school life and ensures that all students get the opportunity to study academic disciplines. Whilst we want all our students to leave Beacon High with the currency they need to access the next stage of their education and to have an unrelenting focus on hard work and discipline, we know that getting great exam results is only half of a good education. We are determined to deliver as many opportunities as we can for every child to flourish outside the classroom. We have excellent facilities and outdoor space, including a swimming pool, and all of our Year 7 & 8 students learn to play the violin.
We place great emphasis on the highest standards for all our students. We promote self-esteem and community values for everyone in the school and pastoral care and inclusion are excellent. Staff know and support students extremely well and provide extra care and assistance where necessary. We also have a house system that encourages a strong sense of community and competition.
At Beacon High, we assume that our learners will achieve their best. We know that our learners will respond to clear boundaries and a clear vision. If we show our students that we believe in them and encourage them to have belief in themselves, their confidence grows and there is no limit to what they can achieve. Our students will leave school not only academically qualified, but also confident, mature and ready to prove themselves.
