Our Vision and Values
Studying at Beaconsfield High School unlocks a child’s future, providing the skills and aptitude to enable them to thrive in the competitive worlds of higher education and work.
Our curriculum intent is to support a happy, high-achieving learning community enriched by the opportunity to discover talents and passions. We plan and build our curriculum so that academic knowledge, enrichment and life skills match the high aspirations of our learners and allow them to make the strongest progress over time. This will prepare them to be the best they can be in school, as citizens in their community and in their future.
We understand the pressures of studying in a high-achieving learning environment. The reason ‘happy’ is one of the first words in our Vision is because we try our hardest to help students and staff with strategies that allow them to understand why they feel so pressured and in doing so, find the skills to manage this pressure.
The school has been delivering a highly successful academic culture for more than 50 years, and is now recognised as an Exceptional School. Students are challenged by remarkable teaching standards and benefit from the attention and respect of highly proficient, dedicated and conscientious staff. Leadership, respect, humility and morality, creativity and physical activity are just some of the additional life skills and behaviours that are taught on a daily basis.

Welcome to Beaconsfield High School, an Ofsted outstanding school, affectionately known as ‘Becky High’. Our vision is to nurture a happy and high-achieving learning community, valuing relationships and respect. Yes, our academic outcomes are consistently excellent, and our students attain the very highest qualifications (in fact, our GCSE results place us in the top 2% of schools nationally), but this is not what I am most proud of.
We pride ourselves on knowing that learning and developing at Becky High is safely challenging, seriously fun and reliably inspiring. What is most important to us is that the children build lasting friendships, enjoy their years with us, and lead a balanced, happy life. We emphasise kindness, consideration, and compassion, encouraging everyone to play their part in fostering this atmosphere, one which visitors tell me is tangible.
Our leadership strategy focuses on holistic well-being as a priority, inspiring a culture of inclusiveness, emotional intelligence, and safety. Staff feel valued, supported, and challenged to be creative and ambitious. This fosters an environment where students feel secure, free to embrace the privilege of learning; inspired by the opportunities available, they dare to be remarkable
Your child will be guided to dream big and unlock their potential. Our young people leave Becky High full of integrity and ambition, ready and equipped to make a positive contribution to society, with the world at their fingertips. Our alumnae include published authors, doctors, elite sportswomen, and Everest conquers, to give just a few examples!
Our extremely strong pastoral team are dedicated to ensuring our young people’s personal development. We support each student to build leadership qualities, positive mental health, resilience and self-worth, enabling them to achieve their personal best.
We are committed to developing the whole person, we provide a broad education that is ambitious and stimulating. Ofsted recognises the high quality of our provision and has designated us an ‘outstanding’ school stating that our “Pupils develop into confident, well-educated and thoughtful young adults who are ready to make their mark in the world."
I hope you will come and visit our wonderful school, so you can see for yourself what a remarkable place it is.

Meet our Head Girl, Sophie
I’m incredibly honoured to be given the opportunity to take on this exciting role and represent the whole student body as well as the school that has given me so much support over the last five years.
Through my younger years, the school’s environment has helped me grow and mature into the person I am today and has given me the confidence to become an independent and resilient student that isn’t afraid to take risks. Every day, our wonderful teachers support and nurture us, both in classrooms and through our wide range of extra-curricular activities, providing the skills and knowledge students need to make the most of all the opportunities that lie ahead of them.
Students are encouraged to collaborate with others and view mistakes as the perfect learning opportunity, which promotes problem-solving skills, resilience, and self-belief, all of which are vital skills for their future beyond Beaconsfield High School. This, along with engaging lessons and approachable teachers, means students have the confidence to step outside their comfort zone and learn beyond the curriculum.
Over the next year, the Senior Prefect team and I hope to make a positive impact on not only the school body, by continuing to improve the wellbeing and collaboration within the school, but also the wider community with charity events and volunteering. The school has an amazing group of students that put their all into everything they do, meaning we all have the power to leave a lasting impact our local community.
Most of all, Beaconsfield High School is a happy, inclusive, and uplifting community that allows every student to reach their full potential by equipping them with the vital skills needed and the support required to achieve and exceed their goals.
