We are incredibly excited about the prospect of seeing young people develop during their time at Beauchamp and want to work closely in partnership with parents/carers and their children. Making a decision about where to send your child to study can often be difficult, however we believe that Beauchamp offers the very best opportunity for academic success and the most rewarding journey from Year 7 to 11 and onto KS5, work, or further training.
The high standards and aspirations of our young people coupled with inspirational teaching means students at Beauchamp College demonstrate exceptional achievement and we are proud of the fact that Beauchamp is consistently placed among the best schools in Leicestershire and beyond. This success is based on the commitment and curiosity of the wonderful Beauchamp students, encouraging parent/carer engagement, the enthusiasm and experience of all staff, and the supportive monitoring of academic and holistic development of all learners.
As our students come from a range of cultural, ethnic, economic, linguistic and faith backgrounds, this has greatly enriched our daily college experience as we learn together and from one another. Inspired by this diversity we believe in pursuing excellence and equity for all. As a result, every year our students prove they can compete successfully in all fields as they move onto university, work and other training opportunities such as apprenticeships.
We feel privileged to work at Beauchamp and believe it is a fantastic college that provides our students with a high quality education, continual support and a huge range of other opportunities. To get a flavour of this we invite all prospective students and their parents/carers for a tour of our college during the college day so that you can get a true view of our daily college routine.
Over the last two years, Beauchamp has run close to 100 trips. Some of the highlights included trips to France, Tanzania and Los Angeles. Out-of-classroom learning makes a unique contribution to a students’ education and offers many varied benefits. At Beauchamp College students have many opportunities to access these activities within various departments. During the Summer of 2018 students and staff travelled to Tanzania to take part in voluntary work with Camps International. In 2020 a similar trip will take place to Costa Rica. Students have also had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles with Media Studies. A ski trip to Austria is planned for 2019 which will enable many students to demonstrate their resilience, as they master their technique. Many UK residentials have also taken place during the year.
At Beauchamp, our aim is to provide a curriculum that engages and challenges all students and supports our vision of academic excellence and holistic development. The introduction of our KS3 provision in September 2017 has enabled us to view our curriculum as a 7 year journey which will equip our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to progress through life with confidence and engender a life-long love of learning.
On behalf of all students, staff, governors and parents, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and to Beauchamp’s Alumni Society. Let me take this opportunity to introduce the aims of the Alumni Society to you and commend its intention to seek your involvement and support for our students and for your past college.
Following on from the updated Government directive on school closures in the Leicester and Leicestershire area, Beauchamp is now closed from Tuesday 30th June to all students except children of key workers who have registered for a place.
Over 200 staff and students from Beauchamp College have signed up to the Anthony Nolan register.
December 19, 2019
In a bid to encourage more 16-30 year olds to sign up to the Stem Cell Donation Register, former Leicestershire Police Officer, Rik Basra - who received a stem cell donation via Anthony Nolan in 2011 - held a special event at the College.
Staff and students appeared in their masses to support the event, with a total of 217 signing up.
Lea, who helped support the event, said ‘I signed up to the register last year, so decided to volunteer as part of the team helping to promote it this year. Signing up takes less than five minutes to do – I’m really happy to see my friends sign up and potentially help to save a life!’
Individuals can sign up to the Anthony Nolan register by providing a saliva swab from the inside of their cheek. The swabs are added to a database which, when matched to an individual suffering from blood cancer, offers them a lifesaving stem cell transplant.
Last year, Beauchamp College student, Joe Potts, was determined a match after registering with Anthony Nolan. Joe took time out of College in the midst of his A-Level studies to donate stem cells.
Of his experience, Joe’s Mum said, ‘I sat there watching my son, rigged up to complicated machinery, feeling tired after having had 4 days of injections and had a brief glimpse of what it might be like to be on the other side'. She continued; 'To give a few days of your time to someone who has potentially already received years of treatment, a lifeline and hope for the future is beyond anyone’s imagination or financial gain. It is such a privilege.’
Currently, only 60 per cent of individuals in need of a stem cell transplant find a match. This figure stands at 20 per cent for people from a black, Asian or ethnic minority background.
Beauchamp College is part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, a Leicestershire-based Multi-Academies Trust with eleven schools.
