Mind Your Manners

25 June 2020

The Year 8 Leavers’ programme started off with a very polite bang this week as the boys were treated to an online session on etiquette. Given that they will all be joining new schools in September, they learned about the importance of creating a good first impression, how to make small talk, the importance of good table manners, and how to talk to girls with elegance and ease!

The session culminated in two short films about manners staring Rory (one of our Deputy Head Boys) and Dominic (Head Boy), who both displayed fine comic acting talent. Thank you, boys, for taking part.

Head’s Talk & Tours

Throughout July and August, our Headmaster, Will Phelps, is 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.”
