Beacon Boys Host Tea Party for Local Veterans

9 November 2019

A group of Year 8 Beacon Boys hosted a wonderful afternoon tea party for local veterans before Christmas. In collaboration with Councillor Mimi Harker OBE, local Armed Forces Champion, the boys helped to plan and co-ordinate the tea party and the event was a huge success.

The boys were inspired to host the afternoon after their recent studies of WW1 and a moving trip to the Battlefields in Ypres earlier in the term. It was a wonderful opportunity to bring different generations together and for the boys to meet the real-life heroes they might have only read about in history books.

Talk & Tours

Throughout August, our Headmaster, Will Phelps, and our Registrar, Jane Baines, are inviting future Beacon families to safely meet with him on our School site for a socially-distanced tour of our incredible school and an informal talk about your son and his education.

“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.”
