Moving to the Area

The Beacon is located in the heart of the idyllic Chiltern countryside. It is the ideal area for families looking to relocate from London and elsewhere, keen for a different pace of life but for a home still within commutable distance to the City.

Choosing a new school often goes hand in hand with relocation to a new area. Our families live in various towns and villages surrounding Amersham such as Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross, Chorleywood, Denham, Great Missenden, High Wycombe and the Chalfont villages; all of which are within our wide and varied School bus and car route service.

Our Registrar is happy to help with your relocation needs as we have close connections with a number of local estate agents and property search agents. We can work with you to ensure your son is settled into The Beacon within time scales that fit around your move.

Amersham has extremely efficient transport links to London, with the train journey taking approximately 35 minutes to Marylebone Station.
