10 REASONS WHY PARENTS CHOOSE BEESTON
Pupils’ outstanding academic achievement: this year, our class of 20 Year 8 leavers have been awarded THIRTEEN academic, sport, music or art scholarships to their senior school, including: Framlingham, Gresham’s, Oundle, Rugby, Stephen Perse School and Tudor Hall.
Our exceptional ethos: children leave Beeston with a sense of achievement and confidence that they have met challenges in an atmosphere of kindness and courtesy.
The way we add value: we are a non-selective school yet children often exceed their own expectations, with a record in 2015 of 74% winning As and Bs in Common Entrance.
We are the only stand alone, full boarding and day independent school in Norfolk, which means we always ensure the right school for the right child. We have 100% success rate in gaining entry to first choice senior schools over the last three years, including: Ampleforth, Aylsham High, Eton, Framlingham, Gresham’s, Harrow, Norwich School, Norwich High School for Girls, Oakham, Oundle, The Leys, The Perse, Queen Margaret’s, Radley, Rugby, Sheringham High, Shrewsbury, Stowe, Tudor Hall, Uppingham, Wymondham College.
Our scale means boys and girls never get ‘lost in the crowd’. Our class sizes are always below 18 and the teacher/pupil ratio is one to six.
‘A country prep with vitality and warmth and a well deserved reputation for nurturing its pupils who are friendly and confident, willing to give things a try. Given a solid grounding, Beestonians go on to do well.’
