Outstanding GCSE Results

Students and teachers are celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE results. Mr Atkinson said, ‘I am delighted that our students have surpassed the very high standards set by previous cohorts. We are looking forward to starting the new term with our largest and best qualified Sixth Form ever.’  Head of Year 11, Ms Cleverly, added: ‘The members of this year group have excelled in extra-curricular activities, including sport, Music, Drama and the DofE Award Scheme and now they have reached the highest levels academically across all areas of the curriculum. I am immensely proud of this tremendous success, which is down to the hard work they have put into their studies, in spite of the challenges they faced due to the Covid pandemic. The students have embodied the character of the school by pulling together and supporting each other to achieve their very best’.

 

Record-breaking success at ‘A’ level

Mr Atkinson, congratulated jubilant students and staff who are celebrating another year of record ‘A’ level examination results for Beaumont.  ‘It’s particularly rewarding that so many students have reached or surpassed their aspirations, with our highest ever number of top exam grades and a record average points score per student’.  Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Tolley, praised the hard work of this year’s cohort, who completed part of their studies through “blended learning”, and are the first to return to formal examinations after the two year hiatus.  ‘Many students achieved straight A or A* grades, earning them places at a wide range of prestigious universities on highly competitive courses; I am delighted that we can expect a record number of students studying Medicine and taking up places at Oxbridge universities this year’.

Year 8 students “go ballistic”!

Dr Jones and Mr Fernandez of the Science Department ran an engineering challenge for Year 8 students to help celebrate Women in Engineering Day, 2022. Students were helped by two visiting engineers, Maha Salem from WhatsApp and Catherine Ross from the Church of England Environment Programme as they competed to build the best ballista device from a limited range of materials.

Art & Photography Exhibition 2022

The Art & Photography Department was delighted to reinstate their annual exhibition of ‘A’ level students’ work after a two year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Students and their parents/carers were able to view the exhibition at their leisure at the after school event and see the inspiring work on display.

Rob’s Festival 2022

Students, parents and staff joined together on the school field for Rob’s Festival 2022. After a two year hiatus, due to Covid-19, we were delighted that so many members of the Beaumont community could join in the fun and raise money for the Prince’s Trust.

Year 11 “Graduation Ceremony”

This week we have celebrated the Year 11, “Class of 2002”. It began with the traditional signing of shirts and blouses at the end of their last day in school and then a trip to Thorpe Park the following day.

The day culminated in a new Beaumont tradition of a “Graduation Ceremony” in the school Hall. After an introduction from Mr Atkinson, Year 11 Form Tutors and students gave their valedictory speeches, including a lot of fond memories and humorous anecdotes.

The evening came to a close with a speech from Ms Cleverly, Head of Year 11, followed by photos and refreshments in the Sixth Form Atrium.

Good Luck to the fantastic Year 11 Class of 2022!
