Message from the Head Girl
It is almost impossible to simply summarise the wonderful experiences I have had at Beaconsfield High School, but what is clear is that I would not change anything. In the last 6 years at this school, the most important lesson that I have learnt is that resilience is the key to success. Every student has the opportunity to be equipped with transferable life skills, invaluable knowledge, and most importantly friendships that will last a lifetime. Above all every individual can learn to value themselves and embrace the ambition that is right for them. As students we have countless opportunities to reach our full potential and strike a balance between academics, sporting endeavour and developing a fulfilling social life. For my A-level options I am studying History, Maths, Economics and Psychology. At university I hope to study Economics or Law, where I hope to deepen my understanding of these subjects. I am privileged to be part of such an accepting, supportive and ambitious community, and cannot wait to see what the future will bring to this exceptional school!

Exam Results 2014
Once again, the school has been named best performing state school in Bucks and rose to 27th in the national GCSE league tables published by the Telegraph last month. This follows an outstanding crop of GCSE results which saw 75% of all grades reaching A* or A. 67 students (45%) achieved only A*/A grades across all their entries this year, while 10 students 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 early entry results. More than a third of all grades were A* while almost 80% were A* or A. This bodes very well for the rest of their GCSEs next year.
Additionally, our A Level results were excellent with bumper rises in the top grades this year. Almost 50% of all examination results were at A* or A grades and over 78% at A*, A or B grades. 6 students all achieved a clean sweep of A* grades, while 31 girls achieved all A or A* grades. 5 students gained places at Oxbridge, and 7 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.
