The Beacon Explodes into British Science Week

5 March 2020

There was a brilliantly bonkers buzz of excitement on Tuesday as the boys in Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 were visited by Dr Sulfur Nitrate. The boys were thoroughly entertained by her brilliant Science experiments and learnt all about the function of controlled explosions and aerodynamics in rockets and aircraft.

Dr Sulfur Nitrate used a range of clever examples to demonstrate complex scientific principles to our students which the boys engaged with and were inspired by. They all came away with big smiles on their faces!

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.”
