Message from the Head Girl
For me, I see Beaconsfield High School as more than just a place of learning. It is a place where each individual is encouraged to create a platform from which they can fulfil their ambitions for the future. Throughout my years at the school, I have recognised that the whole spirit and environment is that of a community, fuelled by team work and driven by the determination of everyone involved. As students, we have countless opportunities to stretch and challenge ourselves, both in the academic arena and through extracurricular activities; this means that everyone has the chance to reach their full potential. For my A-level options I have chosen to study Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Psychology. In the future, I hope to study Psychology or Natural Sciences at university, where my love for sciences can flourish. I am very proud to be part of this school and cannot wait to see what the future may bring!

Increase in top GCSE grades at Beaconsfield High School
There was delight at Beaconsfield High School as over 75% of all grades were A or A* at GCSE this year. Sixty-seven students (45%) achieved only A*/A grades across all their entries this year, while Katie Bench, Helen Carter-Roberts, India Gommo, Nikita Julius, Kate Lemon, Francesca MacDougall, Alaia Maxwell, Natasha Pavelin, Ellie Robinson and Charlotte Spruzen gained a clean sweep of A* grades in this year’s exams.
Also to be congratulated are all the Y10 students on an extraordinary set of results. More than a third of all grades were A* while almost 80% were A* or A.
Headteacher Annette France commented, ‘These are excellent results from both year groups. Y11 have proved themselves to be an outstanding group of people, not just academically, but socially and in every area of school achievement. We will watch their progress with great interest.’
A Level Results 2014 : Beaconsfield High School increases its top level grades
Beaconsfield High School is proud to announce bumper rises in its top grades at A Level this year. Almost 50% of all examination results were at A* or A grades and over 78% at A*, A or B grades.
Alice Cozens, Catherine Hinson, Olivia Jennings, Amelia Noble, Nicola Twinning and Mary Wilson all achieved a clean sweep of A* grades, while 31 girls achieved all A or A* grades.
Headteacher, Annette France, commented, ‘Emma Roberts, Nicky Baker, Mary Wilson, Amy Malone and Lucy Cole all have their Oxbridge places, and seven students will be studying medicine, three dentistry and one veterinary science. All of these courses are highly competitive and are a testament to the quality of our students and their excellent preparation.
We are delighted for all our students as they have achieved extremely well, including exceeding last year’s percentage of A* grades by a further 5%, at a time when nationally the figure is declining. We congratulate them and will watch their future progress with interest.’
