Life Skills 101

30 June 2020

Today our Year 8 Leavers have been practising some essential life skills as part of their Leavers’ Programme. As they leave The Beacon as kind, confident and committed individuals, we also wish for all our boys to be independent and ready for new challenges ahead.

Committed to the tasks, the boys got stuck into the programme, starting with a morning of ironing, shoe polishing and letter writing. After cooking themselves very tasty-looking pasta dishes as part of Mrs Rowland’s challenge, the boys then learned how to properly make their bed and maintain their bicycles. Skills like these are simple yet empowering, and will stand our boys in good stead for the future.


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.”
