Headteacher's Welcome

September 2019

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.  Similarly if you require any information from our website and would prefer a hard copy, please contact us.

I feel totally privileged to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school community. Having worked in a range of schools for 31 years, 16 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 the extremely high standards which are secured. This greatness was no more clearly seen than this summer when our senior students achieved so well in their public examinations. Our Sixth Form students secured record breaking results for our school and there was some exceptional individual outcomes for Year 11 students where targets were significantly exceeded. The 2017 to 2018 academic year was therefore a highly successful one for our school and we are very much looking forward to going from strength-to-strength this forthcoming year.

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!

We hope you find this website helpful; if you would prefer to receive any information contained here as a hard copy please let us know and we would be pleased to send this to you.
