The year 8 football team played their semi final of the County Cup against Carshalton Boys at Sutton FC. The game was a fantastic spectacle as both teams played superb football. Unfortunately Beacon lost the game 1-0 in the last few moments of the game.

We aim to help students make informed decisions at key times in their education, for example with option choices in Year 8, post 16 plans in Year 11 and in Year 12 as they plan for university or working life.  In addition to dedicated careers input for all year groups, the school’s CEIAG programme includes interaction with universities and the local business community.  Year 12 students have the opportunity to complete a one week work experience placement.
