University Destinations 2020
In 2020, 90% of our students went on to a university of their choice; 47% gained a place at one of the ‘Russell Group’ of universities. Beaumont students consistently access the most highly competitive courses nationally.
Each year we support students who apply to medical and veterinary schools, as well as Cambridge and Oxford Universities. All students are given extensive university application and careers guidance, support and impartial advice.
We host a university application information evening for students in Year 12 each Spring Term, which helps parents to understand the process and therefore support their son/daughter as they make important decisions regarding courses to apply for and which universities or alternative career options to consider.
Personal Development In The Sixth Form
All Sixth Form students are encouraged to take on leadership roles within the school. These range from drama, music and sport to specific subject responsibilities. Vital life skills in communication, organisation and leadership are developed as well as the promotion of a sense of community.
Students take on many responsibilities. There are currently 48 Captains in 18 different areas across departments and houses. Students run clubs, support lessons and lead extracurricular events. Additionally our Summer Festival, a large, annual music and sports event held at Beaumont to raise money for the Prince’s Trust and the school, is “run by students, for students”. There is a successful peer mentoring programme, which enables pupils from Years 7 to 11 to meet weekly on a one to one basis with a Sixth Form student.
We also provide a structured tutor programme, where students will receive a tailored PSHCEE programme, support with the UCAS process, information advice and guidance in relation to all career pathways and the opportunity to book appointments with a YC Hertfordshire advisor should they need it.
