Vision and values
Beauchamps High School believes that every student has the potential to achieve far-reaching goals, with the right teaching conditions and, above all, the inspiration to succeed.
The secondary school believes that improvement is limitless, that we should all strive for the best, and that students and teachers should enjoy learning and teaching. Staff at Beauchamps encourage all young people to aim for excellence, while promoting high standards of behaviour.
“Students make excellent progress from average starting points in English and mathematics. They make equally good progress across other subjects and attain high standards overall. Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is exceptional. They are caring, hard-working and well-adjusted young people with a strong respect for British democracy. Teaching is outstanding. Teachers know their subjects extremely well and help students to gain knowledge quickly and then use it skilfully and confidently in all their work. Teachers make very thorough use of information about what students know and can do when planning their teaching; consequently, students of all abilities do well.”
