I am passionate about independent education and a firm believer that exceptional schools produce exceptional people. 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.
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.
The Beacon school site is set within 18 acres of Chiltern countryside. The boys enjoy a vast array of exceptional facilities at The Beacon. Our excellent Sporting facilities include a 540m2 Sports Hall, astro-turf pitches (4 tennis courts) and 16 acres of playing fields with pristine pitches and a cross-country course rolling away to the Chilterns hill. Our new swimming pool is now covered, so the boys can enjoy swimming all year round. For Creative Arts, the facilities include our modern Spinney Theatre, Drama studio housed in a 17th century Old Barn, Music hall plus eight individual practice rooms, Music technology suite with Mac computers, Art studio, DT lab and Food Technology room. The boys are inspired to learn in specialist classrooms including three state-of-the-art Science labs, two libraries and an interactive classroom. Our classrooms are modern and spacious, equipped with interactive whiteboards and a range of other technologies. All boys and staff enjoy meals and snacks in our 17th century Dining Room with contemporary kitchen facilities.
We are proud of our partnership with our 30 leading destination Schools; including local Grammar Schools, Independent Day and Boarding Schools.
