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!

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.
