The New Beacon School Open Day
Friday 9th October 9am – 12pm
“The New Beacon is a place of energy and success, for individual boys and for the entire school community. We know what makes boys tick – from the sensitive to the ebullient – and I have no doubt they achieve more here than in any school I have led. A clear mission, high expectations and excellent teaching lead to achievement: they can all be found in this Prep School. Our recent school inspection stated, “The School is highly accomplished in meeting its aim to ensure that the pupils leave as problem solvers, who can take responsibility for their work, and their lives”. Mike Piercy, Headmaster.
In the classroom, on the sports field, in the music room, the art, design and technology departments, or even in the way members of the school community support each other, New Beacon boys strive for personal excellence.
The School provides a broad, balanced, intellectual, creative and spiritual education with academic achievement at its heart. Our boys are challenged and encouraged, with equal opportunity for all. It is our aim that boys achieve their best through high expectation, excellent teaching and nurtured confidence. The school inspectors said, “the quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent”.
All who work at The New Beacon strive for the highest possible standards in every aspect of the school community and education for the boys. Teachers are specialists in their field, highly professional, dedicated and ambitious for their charges. We believe each boy is an individual and our pastoral care is tailored to help him achieve his best. Respect underpins every strand of school life: respect for the school, its values and traditions; respect for each other – adult and pupil alike; respect for self.
Respect for ‘difference’, regardless of background, culture, belief, opinion, ability or character. We believe in ‘acceptance’ rather than ‘tolerance’. We wish to engender in boys the value of ‘community’, family, school, local and global, through which they have a growing understanding of the world and their place in it.
We ask each boy to strive for personal excellence, aiming to be the best he can be, making the most of every opportunity and possibility. We aim to develop initiative and responsible independence; realistic and respectful ambition.
Many people who meet Beacon Boys remark on the qualities which we endorse: good manners and courtesy; sporting etiquette; confidence (but not arrogance); intellectual curiosity, creativity and innovation.
Do contact us to book a place at one of our Open Days which will give you the opportunity to meet the staff, see the school and be hosted by the boys! Come and find out what makes The New Beacon such a wonderful place for boys. You will also be able to ask any questions that you may have regarding your son’s education.
We are also excited to show you our beautiful new nursery which opened last September. This is for girls and boys rising three years old.
