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 Science Faculty is forward looking and innovative with an excellent reputation for maximising individual student potential. It consists of 13 members of staff led by a Faculty Team Leader who is supported by a number of TLR holders and is housed in a suite of rooms containing 7 purpose build labs, and also a general classroom. The faculty delivers Combined Science Trilogy to most students with a small number completing the Triple Science qualification. Over the past three years there has been a rise in student performance. This year the Science Faculty has seen improved GCSE results for all the courses that are offered. We have recently achieved 61% of students gaining the new 9 - 4 grades for Double Science. For Triple Science this value was 98%! Both these results are above the national average.
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 Professional Learning Programme tailored to our teacher’s needs. Our teachers are always learners and as such role model everything we want for our students.
