Start of Summer Term 7th June

From the start of the Summer Term on 7th June all pupils and students are expected to wear full school uniform to school each day. PE/Games kit should be brought into school on the appropriate days as changing facilities are now available.

There have been a few rooming changes on the timetable for the Summer Term. Pupils/students should check their timetables on INSIGHT prior to the start of term.

Remote learning for Year 11 and U6th students during June is available from the Main Menu under Curriculum and Assessment.

The wearing of Face masks in school from 17th May 2021

Following the updating of the Government guidelines we will no longer be recommending that pupils, students and staff wear face masks in classrooms from 17th May. Should there be a preference to wear a mask in the classroom then that will be accepted. We will, however, continue to recommend the wearing of face masks in communal areas where social distancing cannot be maintained, including in corridors when moving between lessons, and in the lunch queue.

In addition, pupils and students must still wear face coverings when travelling to and from school on public transport.

New Year 7 Transition

We look forward to our new pupils joining us in Year 7 in September. Due to the ongoing restrictions we are not able to run our normal induction activities. However, we hope what we have put in place will still provide a positive induction process and we hope our new pupils are really excited about joining us at Beechen Cliff.

The benefits of a boys' school

At Beechen Cliff we value all that it means to be a boy. With years of experience, teachers at Beechen Cliff encourage boys to grow and mature at their own pace, using teaching strategies that address learning styles specific to boys. They understand the different and complex worlds of the Year 7 boy and the young man preparing for university.

Understanding and celebrating boyhood

In an age when boys and girls are under pressure to grow up too quickly, an all-boy environment allows the boys to stay as boys for longer. Teachers acknowledge the full range of boys’ emotions and vulnerabilities, broadening their spheres. Without the social pressures of a mixed environment, boys in an all-boy school can explore the full range of their personalities and potential. Avoiding stereotypes, boys discover they have many roles to play as a scholar, athlete, artist, musician, and friend.

How boys learn

Beechen Cliff recognises that boys most often are physically active, competitive, and apt to take risks. Lessons are separated by breaks in which boys are encouraged to be active.
We know boys often prefer to work cooperatively and understand the rhythm of a boys’ classroom. Classrooms filled with boys are rarely quiet – we know that successful lessons often introduce a memorable element – learning swordplay can make the text of Romeo and Juliet more interesting and approachable!

From boy to young man

A zest for knowledge and an enquiring mind are important and we expect all boys to achieve high academic standards, but our view of education is embedded in celebrating all aspects of success – the creative and the physical as much as the intellectual.  We support each boy in developing balance within his life, giving access to such a significant range of opportunities that all can find activities which will develop these attributes.  Our boys pride themselves on their participation and achievements.
