About Admissions

There are three main entry points:

Early registration is strongly advised.  However, a place can occur at any time in any year group, so please telephone the Admissions Office (01494 432764) for up-to-date information on availability in other year groups of The Beacon.

There is an Open Morning in each school term and parents are also encouraged to visit during term time. Please contact us to arrange a convenient appointment to see the school in action and meet the Headmaster, Will Phelps.

The Admission’s Office will write and acknowledge receipt of Registration Forms and fees.  No reply indicates a failure in the postal system, so please be in touch if you receive no acknowledgement.

Admission to The Beacon from Year 3 onwards is subject to an assessment of your son’s abilities that is dependent on age and is conducted through verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests.  A small number of places do become available outside the Year 3 and Year 7 entry points and prospective pupils for other year groups are invited to attend either individual assessment days or with other prospective pupils.
