Welcome From the Head

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” Albert Einstein

As Head of Beachborough School, I am privileged to lead a community where we believe everybody is somebody. Where we see potential within every child. We cherish the idea that every child, every teacher, every member of our community brings something exceptional to our school and it is our job to work with our children to help them recognise their potential and find the ‘greatness’ within them.

Greatness is not solely about what you can do but about who you are at Beachborough, it describes learners who have allowed their failures as well as their successes to define them, shaping qualities of character – resilience, self-belief and risk-taking; as these are the companions on the road to potential.

Understanding and promoting the whole child is our priority as we prepare to send each one off to their carefully chosen senior school with the energy, enthusiasm and resilience to cope with failure and to enjoy success. We pride ourselves in strong academic results within a nurturing and safe environment, which enables us to foster positive mental wellbeing and a lifelong love for learning so each child has the opportunity to achieve their optimum goals.

Beachborough is a school where everyone in our community feels known, secure and creative minds are inspired. Happiness breeds success, and our children learn best when they experience a genuine sense of care and are appreciated for their unique qualities. At Beachborough, every child is encouraged and supported to unlock their potential and discover what really inspires them to learn and succeed. I am proud to say that our children are happy, and excel in not only their learning, but in their all-round character too.

Enabling children to see a bright future for themselves, wherever their passions and strengths lie, imparts a long-lasting sense of self-worth and value. We want our children to accept themselves and feel comfortable and confident in their own skin. Beachburians look back on their Prep School years with happy and positive memories.

Beachborough is an exciting adventure – do come and see us for yourself!

I look forward to welcoming you.

Simone Mitchell, Head.
