THE BEACON SCHOOL
The Beacon is a large independent day prep school for boys aged 4 -13. The School occupies a 20-acre site halfway between Amersham and Chesham in Buckinghamshire, easily accessible from London by Metropolitan Line/Chiltern Railways and the M25.
There are over 500 boys and more than 100 staff at the school. Teachers who work at The Beacon are passionate about excellence in teaching and learning and offering the highest levels of pastoral care to their pupils. The teachers have either an independent schools’ background or have moved across from the state sector. The boys are initially taught by Class Teachers, with an increased level of Specialist Subject Teaching as the boys progress throughout the school. Flexibility and variety are incredibly important at The Beacon, where teaching staff work collaboratively across sections of the School, enjoying a varied lesson and extra-curricular portfolio. Staff are regularly involved in life outside the classroom, taking part in sport and games afternoons, outdoor learning sessions and leading after-school clubs and activities.
The Beacon enjoys superb facilities and resources that support a forward-looking educational environment, including a 220-seat theatre for performing arts, three high-spec science labs, art and design technology suites, an outdoor swimming pool and over 15 acres of sports fields. The School’s latest project is the creation of a bespoke technology hub - Centre of Digital Excellence (CODE) - due to complete in 2020.
The School’s values include respect, achievement, integrity, wellbeing and courage and all five values are truly embedded into Beacon life.
A proportion of boys leave The Beacon at Year 6 to go on to local grammar schools, while many continue their educational journey at the Beacon until Year 8, as they are prepared for their next steps in education through the independent schools route. The Beacon frequently supports progression of its pupils to schools such as Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Bradfield College and Merchant Taylors’.
The School prides itself on preparing all boys for life beyond The Beacon and providing the key foundations of support and encouragement ‘to be the best they can be’.
