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.
Year 13 Beauchamp College student Yuvraj has been announced as the Boys’ Under-18 winner of the Hockey Writers’ Club youth and junior awards for 2021 after presentations were made at the annual awards lunch on Friday March 25th at the Royal Thames Yacht Club, Knightsbridge, London.
March 30, 2022
Beauchamp student, Yuraj, has joined the likes of Olympic champions Maddie Hinch and Sophie Bray as past winners of the Hockey Writers’ Club youth and junior awards, in winning this award.
The judging panel sought information from coaches and regions to assess the four winners of 2021. Yuvraj was described by his England under-18 coach Mark Bateman as having “excellent levels of performance” and that he has coped well with the transitioning between the two age groups, at under-18 and EDP level, showing solid commitment to the programmes.
A young Yuvraj used to play basketball and initially started playing as a football goalkeeper. His hockey coach father, Harvinder, said that Yuvraj was “always getting nosebleeds in goal” due to his dedication to fight for the ball! He was invited to Leicester City’s football academy as an under-10, but he switched fully to hockey aged 14 as part of a successful Leicester HC side. He soon moved to Barford Tigers and has been playing in the National League since he was 15. The Tigers are on the cusp of promotion to Division 1.
Last September, Yuvraj made his England under-21 debut against Malaysia at Lee Valley, and he now hopes to attend Loughborough University in September to study bioengineering. He also helps to coach alongside his father in the Leicester region, while Yuvraj’s older brother, Rohan, is a current EDP player.
Associate Principal of Beauchamp College, Sally Wicken, said, “Everyone at Beauchamp College is extremely proud of Yuvraj's achievements, and winning this award is a reflection of his dedication over a number of years. It is no surprise to see that his levels of commitment have been praised and we wish him well as he continues to balance his sporting and academic successes.”
