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 local charities. The local charities our BPS have recently supported are The Theatre Shed, Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and YoungMinds.

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:

  • STEM games and activities for a STEM After School Club
  • A replica suit of Roman legionary armor for the Classics Department
  • A Salvi Titan Harp for the Performing Arts Department
  • Outdoor equipment for the Early Years Department
  • A dehydrating machine and taco presses for use by the boys in Cookery & Nutrition
  • Basketball hoops and backboards for the Sport Hall

The Committee organises a variety of activities and events for the whole Beacon Community throughout the school year, from Quiz Nights, Cake Sales, Social Evenings and a formal Spring Ball for parents and staff, through to Discos and other activities for the boys, plus a Christmas Fair and popular Camp Night. Owing to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 and 2021, the BPS adapted and reinvented their fundraising efforts, with the committee organising various virtual events online, which were hugely successful and well supported by the whole Community.

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.
