Beaumont Skills for Success
Every student at Beaumont School deserves to succeed and stand out. The aim of Skills for Success (also known as S4S), is to help each student on their journey of success: whether academically, personally or in the future. This unique and whole school programme was established almost a decade ago by our own community of staff and students and has ever since been an influential part of how students learn, using essential core skills within curriculum lessons, pastoral areas and extra-curricular activities. There are six main elements: Tune In, Be Persistent, Express Yourself, Take Ownership, Ask Quality Questions and Use Information. Additionally, learners are always encouraged to Get Involved and Be Proactive as voluntary participation in the vast opportunities offered at Beaumont School will undoubtedly provide them with an even more enriching education.
As well as staff, students play a huge role in how Skills for Success is embedded at the school. Last year, hundreds of quality designs were submitted by students from all Year Groups as part of the ‘Skills for Success Logo Competition’. As a result, the fantastic representation of S4S elements as emoji characters stood out the most to the voters and saw Antonia Yuen (then Year 11) secure the top winning spot. Her logo design is currently used as the main branding feature of Skills for Success.
Similarly, 2018-19 academic year will see further student involvement in how Skills for Success is shaped across Beaumont. This year, the learners are encouraged to get involved and join the Student ThinkTank, where they can make the most of the opportunities offered in taking leadership and collaborative roles during various projects of their own choice. Consequently, Skills for Success will continue to be fit for purpose for all learners.
