Inspection Report

As a member of the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS), The Beacon is inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), rather than OFSTED.

ISI inspects under the headlines of Regulatory Compliance and Educational Quality. The Beacon had a Regulatory Compliance Inspection (RCI) in 2017 and all the standards were met (there are no categories of Excellent, Good, etc for this type of inspection). The School is due to have an Educational Quality Inspection (EQI) in 2020 and the report will be published here.

You can read our most recent ISI Inspection Report (2011) and Compliance Inspection Report (Oct 2017) below:

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.”
