I know that choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions you will make for your children and family.
At Beacon Academy the relationships between the staff and students are some of the most phenomenal I have ever seen. Staff have high expectations, are ambitious for the students and they know them well. The rigorous focus on the child as a unique individual ensures that the lessons they receive are personalised and allow them to be actively engaged in their learning. I encourage you to come and see this for yourselves.
At Beacon Academy, it is our vision to provide the best possible education for all of our students and to become an exceptional school, both locally and nationally.
