Design & Technology Opportunities in Year 5

4 February 2020

In Cooking & Nutrition this week, Year 5 boys have been making risotto. They noticed how the starch is released into the sauce and absorbs water to soften it and give it a rich, creamy texture. Meanwhile, in the Design & Technology Lab, the other half of the class have been using a variety of tools to hone and sand their wooden cars.

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.”
