Royal Silver Jubillee 1977

The Big Beacon Alumni Hunt

Unfortunately, over the years we have managed to lose touch with many of our alumni and have regrettably lost some of our records.

If you attended The Beacon, or had a sibling or relative who did, please take a moment to look at our list of lost alumni below, and kindly let us know if you can help put us in touch with anyone listed, tell us any first names where we have only initials, or provide any other information that might help us find lost members (e.g. whether they had any brothers, cousins or other relatives who attended the School). Names appear in class of order, that is the year boys would have left The Beacon had they stayed until Year 8 (aged 13).

Please email any information you have to  We will not add anyone to our mailing list without checking that they are happy for us to do so first. If you would like to update your details, you can do so online using our secure alumni update form.

Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide, and enormous thanks to all those who have already been helping us with this project.

We will be adding further lists of ‘lost’ alumni for our 1950s  leavers shortly.
