Beaumont Leys is a highly successful secondary school consistently rated as Good by Ofsted. Housed in a vibrant and colourful new build designed to replicate our inclusive and positive ethos, Beaumont Leys boasts fantastic facilities and a well utilised sports hall and fitness suite available to all staff. We consider our catering to be the best with regular staff breakfasts or hand-carved roasts. Our dining room is a wonderful place for staff to eat and catch-up and we even have a Cappuccino machine!!
Our Design and Technology Faculty offers a broad curriculum at KS3 and 4. Students in KS4 have the choice of GCSE Food, Resistant Materials, Textiles and Product Design. The faculty is also involved in teaching GCSE Hospitality. Design and Technology is a popular subject and we have been pleased to have all options running. Students love their lessons and develop very good practical skills and a love of working creatively. The ability to teach a second Design and Technology subject would be an advantage.
We believe in ‘going the extra mile’ to help support students and staff. We believe in the power of our staff. We work hard to recruit the best and then we support them to be even better. Our internal promotion record is impressive, even our Head Teacher started with us as a NQT. We engage extensively with local ITT providers, including Teach First and Researchers into School, provide an excellent NQT support programme and run our own internal BLOTS programme for potential Beaumont Leys Outstanding Teachers. Our teachers are always learners and as such role model everything we want for our students.
