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.
