Welcome to our Year 7 Virtual Open Evening

Year 7 Virtual Open Evening

A warm welcome to Beauchamp College, a proud secondary school and sixth form in the heart of Oadby, Leicestershire. 

We're so excited to e-meet you - and, although we're disappointed that we haven't been able to greet you in person, along with hundreds of other families that usually attend our Open Evening - we're determined to leave you feeling just as excitedrefreshed, and inspired at the prospect of enrolling at Beauchamp. 

At our Virtual Open Evening, you'll be able to "stroll" through our corridors in our Virtual Tour, hear from key members of our Senior Leadership Team, learn about the Lionheart Trust and our coveted curriculum, and browse our digital prospectus - all from the comfort of your own home! And of course, if that's not enough, we're operating a limited number of safe site tours late in the month; available to book below. 

In difficult times, when many of you aren't able to attend Beauchamp in person, it was important to us that we delivered Beauchamp to you. 

Therefore, we hope that as you navigate this page, you get a true feel for Beauchamp College and everything it represents - as if you were right here with us. 

 

A Welcome from our Senior Leadership Team

Meet our Executive Principal, Associate Principal, Vice Principal and Head of Key Stage 3 as they discuss our vision and ethos, and share what it truly means to 'Be More Beauchamp.

A Curriculum Overview, led by our Subject Directors and Curriculum Leads

At Beauchamp College, as the lead school for Lionheart Academies Trust we focus on the key tenets of Academic Excellence and Holistic Development with a commitment to social mobility and equity for all.

 

Our curriculum ensures that by the time children begin Key Stage 4 they have a secure knowledge and understanding of essential and challenging vocabulary, concepts and procedures as well as pertinent people, places and events in order that all our children, including those less privileged have access to the curriculum content that they need to succeed academically and in life. We have carefully selected curriculum content to ensure depth and breadth of what is being taught.

Our curriculum goes beyond what is assessed and is not designed just to push through mark scheme hoops: we believe that academic excellence is achieved through a curriculum that facilitates comprehension across subjects, encourages independent thought and creativity. It is precisely through our curriculum then, that we encourage our learners to be reciprocal, resilient, reflective and resourceful and develop as confident life-long learners.
