Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to The Beacon School, an inclusive and thriving learning community which prepares students for life by giving them the qualifications, skills and confidence that they need to be successful in the wider world.  

We are an ambitious, outward-looking school and we believe that all of our students deserve the best education. The school is driven by our mission statement:

  • We are committed to providing an outstanding education where all students achieve academic success.
  • Our inspirational and challenging curriculum allows all abilities to flourish and self-confidence to thrive.
  • Every individual is valued, learning is enjoyed, success is celebrated and responsibility is shared enabling our students to grow into responsible, questioning citizens who play a full and active role in society

We are a values driven school and these behaviours are a constant in what we expect of ourselves, students and families:

We care, we aim high, we achieve together, we lead the way.

As an Academy within GLF Schools and part of the GLF Teaching School we work closely with our partner schools to benefit from giving and receiving shared resources, facilities and wider support for the school.

We have high expectations of all students. We expect them to arrive on time, dress smartly, behave respectfully, be able to take pride in their achievement and to learn. Our curriculum is innovative and broad, providing a range of courses tailored to students’ needs. We challenge students to work hard, stretch their thinking and achieve. We have an excellent and dedicated staff who work relentlessly to ensure these high standards are maintained and built upon.

Good exam results are important to us, but we strongly believe in the importance of a well-rounded education where enrichment activities and wider student development are equally valued. Our unique enrichment programme offers a range of exciting learning opportunities beyond the classroom, inspiring our students and developing their talents.

Our students and staff are proud of the school and we would be delighted to meet you at one of our open events. We are also happy to make individual appointments for prospective parents/carers, students or members of the community to visit us.
