Year 4 Inventors

15 May 2020

Inspired by Wallace and Gromit’s ‘Cracking Contraptions’, our Year 4 boys have done brilliantly well to design and promote their very own inventions which would help people at home during these times. Having first produced blueprints of their designs, the boys then created advertisement posters and wrote explanation texts in their English lessons to describe how their invention works and why it is useful. We were blown away by every single piece of work; for a snapshot of some of these fantastic inventions, please see below.

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.”

For a genuine insight into The Beacon, see our recent review from Muddy Stilettos.
