Destination Schools

Our boys leave The Beacon at either Year 6 or Year 8. At the end of Year 8, aged 13, the majority of our boys leave us to go to the local independent day schools such as Berkhamsted Boys’ School or Merchant Taylors’ School, or to one of the many boarding school options, including Bradfield College, Eton College, Harrow School, Marlborough College, Oundle School, Rugby School, Shiplake College, St Edward’s Oxford and Wellington College.

In the past few years, boys from The Beacon have received Academic, Music, Drama, Art, Design Technology and Sports scholarships to Ampleforth, Berkhamsted Boys’ School, Bradfield College, Charterhouse, Eton College, Haileybury, Harrow School, Marlborough College, Merchant Taylors’ School, Millfield, Oundle School, Radley, Rugby School, Shiplake College, St Edward’s Oxford, Uppingham and Wellington College, amongst others. This is a familiar pattern year on year.

Boys also leave us at the end of Year 6 to take up places at the local grammar schools, mainly Dr Challoner’s Grammar School in Amersham, The Royal Grammar in High Wycombe and Chesham Grammar. The Beacon continues to be the largest feeder schools into Dr Challoner’s Grammar School.

We are always proud of all our boys and look forward to hearing their tales of senior school when they return to The Beacon to reminisce!
