a separate wing of the main school building. Recent refurbishment has taken
place to provide comfortable, modern accommodation throughout, in single and
two-bedded rooms. More than 80% of our pupils are from the UK, while our
boarders include a range of nationalities from the UK and across the world.
Beechwood encourages high standards and values - honesty, respect and
consideration for others, derived from its Catholic tradition, while welcoming
pupils of all religions.
“The quality of pastoral care, support and guidance is outstanding”
Students always comment on our welcoming atmosphere and how easy it is to
settle in and make friends at Beechwood. New boarders enjoy outings to London
and Brighton where they have the chance to appreciate some of the history and
culture of Britain. If needed, there are lessons in English as an additional
language; speech & drama lessons also help with pronunciation and build
confidence in spoken English. Pre-A level courses are available for students
who wish to improve their English before beginning their examination course.
