Welcome to Beechen Cliff

A warm welcome to all of our Year 6 pupils and parents as you start your journey with us.

We sincerely hope that with the brilliant support of our school community, all of our pupils will be able to lead happy and healthy lives, thrive as individuals and make a positive contribution to society. Our values of Aspiration, Balance, Compassion, Independence, Integrity and Respect will help you develop your personal values to become a well-rounded and confident person who can enjoy the best possible well-being.

You will have a sense of excitement as you approach this new chapter in your lives. It is unfortunate that we have been unable to meet you in person as yet due to the lockdown, but we hope the virtual sessions with your Head of House on Tuesday 7 July at 6.30pm (details of which will come to you in the post) will go some way to alleviating any apprehension that you may be experiencing. A general version of the letter sent, without the specific links for each House, and the slides referred to in this letter are available in the download section below.

We hope you have a brilliant summer and we very much look forward to meeting you in September and working with you in the years ahead.
