We are proud of the strong academic curriculum we offer at Beechen Cliff.  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 enduring values that are highly regarded 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. The curriculum is carefully designed to ensure it provides a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. It provides a balance between embedding knowledge and skill development. Reflecting the 2010 Equality Act, the curriculum provides learning opportunities that takes into account gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation, beliefs etc.
