Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to our website. At Beaconsfield High School our vision is to develop, not only the mind, but also the body and the spirit.  Consequently, the school is vibrant, friendly and dynamic.  We are proud of the open and supportive relationships between our staff and the girls.  The highly successful academic culture offers broad, stimulating and, at times, inspiring educational experiences that are designed to reinforce independence, resilience and confidence.  It is these skills, amongst others, that have been seen to provide an immediate advantage in the competitive world of higher education and the world of work. 

Beaconsfield High School girls thrive in this environment; both academically and creatively.  Staff reinforce the value of leadership, positive morality and humility and a recent school review stated that the students have 'excellent attitudes to learning and impeccable behaviour'.   We are rightfully proud of the supportive and caring pastoral system that complements the wealth of learning and extra-curricular activities provided by a dedicated staff team.  All that we do is designed to help students grow and develop into remarkable young ladies with a pride in their school and a pride in themselves.

I hope this gives you a sense of what this school could offer for your daughter.  Please do browse the website and decide for yourself.

Our school motto at Beaconsfield High School is ‘disciplina et doctrina’, meaning teaching and learning - a sentiment which I feel is no better encapsulated than in the culture of our school. I consider it a privilege to be part of such a friendly and inclusive student body, which continues to facilitate learning both within the curriculum and beyond. There is a rare and unique atmosphere here at Beaconsfield High School, which is simultaneously nurturing yet educative; competitive yet inclusive, and which allows students to develop resilience, confidence and compassion within a demanding and rigorous curriculum. Our consistently outstanding results at every level in sporting, musical and academic endeavours speak for themselves, but with these excellent achievements aside, Beaconsfield High School is unique in how it nurtures in students a true sense of belonging; prioritising values of respect, integrity and enthusiasm to learn. I have always been proud to be part of such an ambitious, dynamic and supportive school community, and am tremendously excited to see what the future will bring to this exceptional school.
