Welcome to The Beacon

A very warm welcome to The Beacon.

I am exceptionally proud to lead this inspirational School, where providing an outstanding education, both in and beyond the classroom, and instilling the traditional values of kindness, respect and honesty underpin everything we do.

The Beacon’s reputation as a School where no boy is ever overlooked and each individual is inspired to fulfil his own academic, creative and physical potential within a caring, secure and stimulating environment has been well earned since our foundation in 1933.

Working in an all-boys’ educational environment allows our dedicated teachers to tailor their teaching and curriculum to maximise the way boys learn and to engage in them a real love of learning that will last a lifetime.

While the academic core skills are at the heart of the School, The Beacon is also dedicated to teaching the boys how to learn, instilling key core learning skills, such as independent thinking, teamwork and resilience, to prepare them for this ever-changing world.

The Beacon never stops driving forward, developing and changing our teaching and resources to meet the needs of our boys today and to prepare them for their future. We will inspire your son to do the same for himself, to cultivate initiative, raise his sights and his expectations and to remain continuously curious about the world.

After successfully gaining places at top Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools and the UK’s leading Senior Schools, many with scholarships, our boys leave us as confident, caring young men able to make the most of their own talents and to be integral members of both the local community and the world around them.

I would be delighted to meet you to explain more about The Beacon and the unique education we can offer your son.
