Our purpose at Beechen Cliff is to develop the compassion, aspiration, balance and resilience of each pupil.  When pupils leave us we want them to be at ease with themselves, to have a sense of self-worth, to be able to stand up for their beliefs and to be a valuable member of society.

We are proudly traditional in our approach and offer a strong academic curriculum.  Although methods of teaching and expectations of society have changed, the essence of a high quality education remains unchanged.  It is these timeless qualities and Beechen Cliff’s sense of tradition that is valued by generations of parents and pupils.

Beechen Cliff’s strong local and national reputation for excellence stems from a determination to provide the strongest support and guidance for academic success to be achieved.  In both 2011 and 2014 Beechen Cliff was judged as Outstanding.  Nationally our boys’ achievement is within the top ten percent for academic attainment, with 70-80% five good GCSE grades being gained in any given year.

In recent years Beechen Cliff has always been significantly oversubscribed which reflects its popularity in attracting applicants from across Bath and the surrounding areas.
