Welcome from the Headmaster

Welcome to The Beacon.

The Beacon is a school rightly proud of its long-standing success with Senior School transition and formidable sporting prowess, but more than this, it is the development of young boys’ characters, personalities and their ability to converse with one another that defines a ‘Beacon Boy’. Generations of boys have progressed to their Senior Schools as assets to their communities; their engaging company, innate sense of kindness, quiet confidence and good humour, all learnt and fostered through their formative years at The Beacon.

“Pupils of all ages and abilities have excellent knowledge and skills across all areas of the curriculum.”

ISI Report 2022

“The quality of teaching is exceptional, but we most love the Pre-Prep for its traditional values, with mottos (constantly reinforced) like ‘be safe, be thankful, be kind’, or what it means to be a good sport. It’s just a happy, buzzy place.”

Reception Parent

“Parents looking to turn out modern, independent, outward-looking ‘all-rounder’ boys in a nurturing environment… it can cater to bigger personalities whilst still being small enough to nurture the less extrovert.”

Muddy Stilettos (June 2020)

“Everybody has different gifts…everybody is good at different things. At The Beacon we want to help each of our boys discover their talents and aptitudes.”

Teacher

“It is more than a school and we have been privileged to be part of The Beacon.”

Parent

“Pupils have excellent self-knowledge, self-confidence, and self-belief.”

ISI Report 2022

“From the moment your son arrives at The Beacon, he will be encouraged, educated and enthralled by a dedicated team of staff who have one aim: to make every day at school a memorable one.”

The Good School Guide

“There can be few Prep Schools with opportunities as diverse as The Beacon’s…and facilities to match!”

Parent

“The Beacon do it all; from breakfast club at 07:30, bus services, a great range of after-school clubs to tea and care until 18:00. As working parents, this makes such a difference to our family life.”

Parent

“The largest single sex prep school in the UK, The Beacon still has an impressively inclusive, family feel to it, with a focus on pastoral care and turning out well-rounded boys.”

Muddy Stilletos (June 2020)

“Pupils of all ages and abilities have outstanding attitudes to learning”.
