A real combative performance from both sides meant it was close until the end when Jacob was put through on goal to make it 2-0 and game over. Beacon now face Glyn or Carshalton Boys in the next round! TGA https://t.co/IwXTbRTTHJ

It was not long before this paid off as Jack's flick at the near post meant the ball dropped nicely for George to spectacularly overhead kick the ball to loop over the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 Beacon; cue Beacon celebrations. https://t.co/bfZtDiJLkK

The threat of Jamie's long throw was evident in the first half so at half time a strategy was formed. https://t.co/5uKJQTWhWy

A few back to back injuries for Beacon meant we changed positions of players which actually allowed us to gain control of key areas of the pitch that Greenshaw had dominated at the start and also launch our own attacks. At half time it was an even 0-0. https://t.co/R4DV7nClr8

The year 11 football team marched on in the Surrey Cup thanks to a hard fought 2-0 victory over Greenshaw. The game started with Greenshaw slightly on top and creating a couple of chances but none to worry Ryan in goal. https://t.co/QcygRLDrkn

Duke of Edinburgh Awards

The Beacon School run a very successful DofE programme supporting our students through Bronze, Silver and very shortly the Gold Award.

To take part in the DofE is an ideal opportunity for a student to participate in a life changing experience.  They will discover new interests, talents and develop essential skills for the future in their life and work. They will have fun and make new friends, improve their self-esteem and confidence.  Plus, the award will enhance a CV or University application as DofE is recognised as a mark of achievement.

Students from any background, regardless of ability, gender or location can participate.  It is not about being first or a competition it is about setting both personal challenges and boundaries.

Students aged from 14 to 24 years of age can progress through the three levels - Bronze, Silver and finally Gold as follows:

  • Bronze – for those aged 14+
  • Silver – for those aged 15+
  • Gold – for those aged 16+

There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level and five at Gold.  Each level involves working with the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing lots of new skills, planning, training and completing an expedition.

As mentioned above students need to be 14 years of age to participate but if they are still 13 at date of application then they are welcome to speak to the DofE Leader, Mr Preen as they could still take part.

The Beacon School is accredited as a licensed organisation and the staff will support all students through their programme helping them to choose their activities and set their objectives to achieve their award. 

Dedicated sessions take place once a month, after school on a Friday with Mr Preen the DofE Leader.  Mr Preen is also available to see students at break and lunchtime to deal with any questions a student may have, it is the students responsibility to sort any queries..
