Looking After Yourselves and Others

26 June 2020

As our boys prepare to leave The Beacon and embark on new adventures, we wish for them to move on with the skills to look after themselves and others. And what better way to look after yourself and loved ones than to cook them nice, healthy meals? As part of their Year 8 Leavers’ Programme, our boys were set the task by Miss Kearns to bake her ‘Lockdown Loaf’. Each loaf made was delightfully unique in some way, with one boy even making an Irish sourdough loaf instead! It is so important to be able to make and share food with others and the boys did very well indeed.

This week also saw our Year 8 boys complete an online first aid course, to enable them to learn how to care for themselves and/or others if the situation requires it. Having to participate in the course remotely will have made it more challenging, but the boys carried out the task with maturity and can now feel much more confident of what to do when help is required.

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.”
