Message from the Headteacher
Welcome to Beaconsfield High School
Our school ethos emphasises high academic achievement while recognising each girl is an individual. Learning at Beaconsfield High School is both exciting and challenging and we encourage our girls to have the highest aspirations. However, in order to prepare our students for a world of constant change and increasing complexity, we offer an innovative and flexible curriculum with many opportunities for students to develop their leadership potential, including a rich programme of extra-curricular opportunities. Our highly committed and well-qualified staff work to support all our students to develop as independent, flexible, enthusiastic and confident learners. Exploring the rest of this website will give you a further flavour of how we discover and develop individual potential.

Exam Results 2013
Improvements in GCSEs in spite of the national trend.
Beaconsfield High School is pleased to report improvements in both our A* grades across all subjects and in particular our Science top grades – both flying in the face of national trends. Chemistry GCSE top grades rose by 9% and our Y10 ‘fast track’ GCSE top grades are also up by 4%.
Sixty girls (40%) achieved only A*/A grades across all their entries this year, while Katie Gibson, Lucy McLaughlan, Tilly Nevin, Natasha Pourkarimi and Jenny Smallwood gained a clean sweep of A* grades in this year’s exams.
100% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths and 72% of all grades were A and A*.
Headteacher Annette France commented, ‘We are delighted with the results of all our students. The importance is not so much the number of A* grades, but the fact that our students achieve their potential and are enabled to follow their dreams. I congratulate them all.’
Excellent Exam Results at A Level – again!
Following a bumper year for results in 2012, this year’s students have again achieved a similarly excellent set of A Level results: over 40% of all grades being at A* or A, and over 80% at A*/A/B grades.
Particular credit must be given to Grace Atkinson, Luisa Carpenter, Chloe Coutts, Anita Holender, Charlotte Key, Angelica Lindsey-Clark, Isla Thomas and Rachel Walker who achieved A* grades in all their subjects while 36 girls achieved all A*or A grades.
Grace, Anita, Angelica and Rachel all have their Oxbridge places, while five girls will be reading Medicine and a further three Veterinary Science – all highly competitive courses.
Headteacher, Annette France, commented, ‘This year group demonstrated a mature approach to their work and were guided effectively through their studies by the excellent teaching staff here. We are proud of all their achievements which also extend beyond the academic. We congratulate them all and wish all our students continuing success in the coming years.’
