Core purpose and values

Our mission

We recognise that every student at The Beacon School has one chance at their education and deserves an exceptional experience, whatever their starting point. We are proud of our vibrant community comprising our driven, committed and expert staff, our kind, hard working and motivated students and our supportive and aspirational parents. Collectively we strive to ensure that the Beacon journey is enriching, challenging, engaging, and above all that it prepares our students academically, socially and culturally for a life full of choices, opportunities and achievement.

Our vision

By 2026 excellent leadership will ensure that The Beacon School will be a high achieving and thriving inclusive community which has a relentless focus on excellence. We will deliver excellent teaching which will holistically prepare our students for life by preparing them to achieve excellent qualifications, as well as to acquire the skills and confidence that they need to succeed in the wider world. This will be underpinned by a rich and ambitious curriculum for all students regardless of ability or background. Excellent leadership will ensure that our students will receive the modelling, guidance and support to understand the values of character, respect and integrity which are the foundation of excellent behaviour for learning; and simultaneously we will encourage our students to become curious, reflective, empathetic and resilient learners, developing the qualities which will allow them to experience success in and out of the classroom. Finally, we will build excellent partnerships with external stakeholders to provide our students with excellent role models, a breadth of enrichment experiences and to provide our students with the opportunity to become leading members of their local, national and international communities.

  1. Excellent teaching and learning

Teaching will inspire, engage, challenge and motivate, will encourage the highest academic and behavioural standards and will develop a passion for lifelong learning among our students which will provide the firmest foundation for future success
