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’.

 

Outstanding ‘A’ level results

Jubilant students and staff are celebrating another year of outstanding ‘A’ level examination results. Mr Atkinson said: ‘It’s particularly rewarding that so many students have reached or surpassed their aspirations, in a year that has seen a national reduction in the number of higher grades awarded. Mrs Tolley, Head of Sixth Form, praised the hard work of this year’s cohort, who were sitting externally assessed exams for the first time, due to the pandemic. ‘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 taking up places at Oxbridge universities this year. Whatever pathway our students now pursue, everyone at Beaumont wishes them all the very best’.

Year 7 & 8 Drama Clubs presentations

In spite of the heat, the Year 7 and Year 8 Drama Clubs delighted their audiences with their productions this week:

Year 7 students, under the guidance of their Drama teachers and Year 12 Subject Captains, used the Beaumont Amphitheatre to present: Finding Neverland

The Year 8 students performed: A Voice in the Void!  This special piece of theatre was devised by the Year 12 Drama Leaders, assisted by the Year 10 Drama Captains and the Year 8 students attending the club. The performance was created over several weeks, during which students learnt about devising and technical theatre skills and how to make new, original theatre.

Year 13, Class of 2023

The departing Year 13 Class of 2023 has gone on Study Leave today. This cohort are facing their first set of external examinations this year as their Year 11 public exams were cancelled, due to Covid-19.  As is the Beaumont tradition, students came to school on their final day in fancy dress to mark the occasion. After breakfast in their Tutor Groups, outdoor games and a visit from an ice cream van, students enjoyed a few words of good luck and farewell from their Head of Year (Ms Wilson) and the Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Tolley.

We wish this cohort of talented, supportive and resilient students all the very best in their forthcoming examinations and their futures beyond Beaumont.
