Messy Play Mornings

Our Messy Play Mornings are perfect for families new to The Beacon to come and enjoy a wonderful array of messy, fun and educational activities. Make your own creative art, test out paper boats on water, build a sand castle of your dreams or just have fun in our adventure playground – there’s something for everyone.

The popular events are ideal for children aged 2 to 5 years’ old, they are completely free of charge and they will also give parents the chance to see our Reception first hand, and talk to our teachers and Registrar. Parents are encouraged to stay, enjoy some refreshments, meet fellow parents and even join in with some of the creative games on offer.

Upcoming Messy Play Morning

With the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to cancel our planned Messy Play Morning at The Beacon on Saturday 16 May. We very much hope to hold another Messy Play Morning later on in the year, and will confirm the date in due course. If you would like to be kept informed about forthcoming Messy Play Mornings at The Beacon please complete the form 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.”
