The Beacon Helps To Restore Hope

21 April 2020

The Beacon’s Dining Hall has transformed into a storage and distribution centre for The Storehouse Project – a Community Volunteer Programme in partnership with local churches, Chiltern Foodbank, Restore Hope, and many other volunteers from across the region, to provide boxes of hope to local children and families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project are currently delivering three main boxes:

  • A Box of Hope – full of craft activities and toys for children while school sites are closed
  • An Easter Blessing Box – with Easter eggs and Easter-themed magazines
  • Emergency Foodbank boxes for singles, couples and families in need of food at this difficult time

The Beacon is honoured to be part of this important community project. To watch a wonderful video of local families receiving their boxes, please click here.

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. Please click here for more details.

“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.”
