Beachborough School is set in an idyllic setting on the edge of the village of Westbury; the modern facilities cluster around the lovely old stone Manor House reflecting the balance between tradition and innovation that characterises our school. The education we provide for over 370 boys and girls, combines modern ideas and state-of-the-art facilities like our new ‘Technology, Engineering and Design’ (TED) suite, with rigorous teaching and the old-fashioned values of diligence, kindness and good manners. At whatever stage your child joins us, be it in our Early Years (2½ to 4 years), Pre-Prep (5 to 7 years) or Prep School (8 to 13 years) they will benefit enormously from the Beachborough adventure. We are quietly proud of our 100% success rate at Common Entrance and our record for scholarships, enabling every child to go on to the Senior school of their choice, among them: Abingdon, Bloxham, Headington, MCS Oxford, Stowe, St Edwards and Tudor Hall.
With 35 acres of beautiful grounds, sports fields and woods, being outside in our stunning surroundings is a big part of life at Beachborough; it enriches traditional classroom teaching and makes every break time magical. From the moment a child starts in Nursery the little ones hone their skills in the Forest School in their wellies and iconic blue boiler suits – getting muddy is encouraged! As they get older their forays into nature are specifically designed as part of curriculum in the Wetlands area; field work that really brings the subject alive and teaches them vital practical skills in the process.
Beachborough is committed to an education that has the wellbeing of each child at its heart; to develop individuals who thrive and flourish in the fullest sense. We aim to equip our children to be happy and confident, form lasting relationships with others and develop strategies for coping with the challenges life throws at them – essential skills for succeeding in today’s complex, fast-moving world. Children from Form lll upwards, have the option of staying the night in Kites, our cosy Boarding House, whenever they like; this fosters their independence, strengthens their friendships and gives them the experience for boarding at senior school. With water fights, movie nights, BBQs and games in the woods – boarding nights at Beachborough might just be the best sleepovers they ever have!
Beachborough is an exciting adventure – do come and see us for yourself!
We look forward to meeting you.
