Years 1 & 2

Our Year 1 and 2 boys are taught in our purpose-built Winterbourn building, home to six inspiring and spacious classrooms. Each class benefits from a fully-qualified teacher, as well as a dedicated teaching assistant.

Pre-Prep Curriculum

In Years 1 and 2, boys enjoy a full and broad curriculum, providing stimulation and breadth of discovery. Boys in Pre-Prep enjoy specialist taught subjects such as Music, Drama, ICT, Games, PE and International Studies (Year 2), which complement the core learning that takes place in the classrooms. There are many opportunities for Outdoor Learning in the playground, on our playing fields – Willsfield – and in the local countryside, where boys can apply the skills they have learnt in Maths and Science, as well as further afield during school trips to venues such as College Lake and Windsor Castle.

“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.”
