Scholarship Success for our Beacon Boys

5 July 2021

A huge congratulations to our Year 8 leavers on being awarded an incredible range of scholarships, awards and exhibitions to a wide variety of leading independent senior schools next year.

“We are extremely proud of the determination, resilience and dedication shown by all our boys over these challenging times,” says The Beacon’s Headmaster Will Phelps. “Our boys have remained completely focussed and have continued on from scholarship success of previous years to be awarded a wide breadth of scholarships, awards and exhibitions, ranging from Academic, All-rounder, Drama and Music to Sport and DT, to outstanding independent senior schools such as Harrow School, Eton College, Oundle School, Magdalen College School, Merchant Taylors’ School and Berkhamsted School.

“Some of these boys have been at The Beacon for 10 of their 13 years,” says Simon Detre, Deputy Head (Academic & Digital). “They recently had the chance to reflect on their memories by writing a piece called My Time at The Beacon. In writing these trips down memory lane, the boys often share their earliest memories of staff who helped them when they were much smaller than the strapping young men you see in the photo. There are many people who contribute to the journey of each Beacon boy – both teachers and support staff – and as we celebrate the boys and all their achievements, we also recognise the staff and, of course, the parents who have helped to guide our Beacon boys, of whom we are so proud.
