KEEPING YOUR CHILD SAFE ONLINE
A DFE endorsed guide, Child Online Safety: A practical guide for Parents, by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCISS) provides parents and carers with information to help them keep their children safe when using social media.

My time at Beacon Hill provided a massive range of opportunities which have proved valuable not only whilst studying at sixth form and when applying to university, but also in everyday life.
When I left Beacon Hill I had a career path in mind; I wanted to teach. This was down to 5 brilliant years at the school. I was inspired by my teachers who encouraged and supported me to believe in myself and my abilities.
We are impressed with how both of our children have settled in and are progressing though the school. We find staff understanding & helpful.
Progress is tracked effectively and extra help given quickly to students who need it.
The school has developed a really positive culture for learning, as a result of high expectations of both staff and pupils.
The curriculum meets the needs of individual students particularly well [providing] a balance of academic and vocational courses for students to study at GCSE.
Students have good attitudes to learning and are keen to succeed.
Evidence from pupil interviews, work scrutinies and HMI visit indicates that the Stage not Age curriculum is impacting positively on the quality of learning in the school.
Students benefit from a very wide range of activities which enrich the curriculum… a wealth of field trips, sporting activities and drama productions
Teachers know their students extremely well and work is closely tailored to students’ individual needs.
