Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Beechwood. I sincerely hope that our website gives you some insight into the vibrant, dynamic, ambitious, happy and successful community that we are. If you would like to learn more about our school, you are warmly invited to visit us. Please call us to arrange a time to tour our school and meet our wonderful young people and staff.

I feel totally privileged to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school community. Having worked in a range of schools for 29 years, 13 of which as a Headteacher, I can confidently state that there is something very special about Beechwood. The community spirit is so strong. The commitment of staff is absolutely exceptional and our young people are truly inspired and achieve great things as a consequence. This is the reality because of our special set of ‘Beechwood Values’

We value all.

We respect all.

We believe in all.

We see the good and potential in all.

We have a strong sense of all having an entitlement to experience excellence & success.

We are all determined to ‘do our best to be the best that we can be’.

These values determine everything we do and aspire to achieve together every day. We have a School Motto

Try our best to do our best to be the best!

This is known by all and acted upon by all every day. Our motto is our daily reality and reflects totally the tremendously high standards which are secured.

In light of this, when parents entrust their child in to our care, I completely make a promise.

  • Your child will be treated as an individual whose individual needs are identified and met.

  • Your child will be supported to grow and achieve academically and socially.

  • Your child will have a very broad and complete education.

  • Your child will thrive, succeed and be able to fulfil their hopes, dreams and ambitions.

The fulfilment of this promise and therefore the experience of life as a Beechwood student, simply means that we are exceptionally proud of all of our young people. They achieve great things, they have great futures ahead of them, they are, indeed, simply great!
