Beacon Parents’ Society

The Beacon has a very active Beacon Parents’ Society (BPS), which aims to provide fun and inclusive social activities for our parents and boys, while at the same time raising funds for both the School (equipment and resources) and two local charities, Pace School and Horizon Sports Club.

The BPS Committee comprises of parents representing all year groups and also includes some members of staff.

Recent projects that the Beacon Parents’ Society has funded include:

  • to help fit out the Centre for Digital Excellence with new green screen technology and ingenious new furniture to enhance the boys’ computer learning experience;
  • a state-of-the-art Kinetic Sandbox and projector for the Geography Department;
  • board and card games for a new break-time Games Café;
  • a mannequin to display Roman legionary armour in the Classics classroom;
  • two new table tennis tables for the boys to play on at break-time;
  • display boards for the Art department; and
  • a new laser cutter and 3D printer for the DT room.

The Committee organises a variety of activities and events for the whole Beacon Community throughout the school year, including a Quiz Night, Easter Cake Sale and Cupcake Competition, a formal Spring Ball, plus a Christmas Fair, Family Rounders Tournament and popular Family Camp Night.

If you would like to come and join this friendly committee on a regular basis, or just dip in and out to help with events whilst getting involved in the life of the School, please contact our BPS co-chairs, Octavia Orchard and Emma Ife, on bps@beaconschool.co.uk.
