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.
Here at Beauchamp we all have a passion for learning. We expect our students to share our passion and commitment, making excellence a habit.
We are proud of our comprehensive college and its traditions and history of providing opportunities for students to achieve their full potential. We believe in pursuing excellence and equity; every year our students prove they can compete successfully in all fields. Our students come from diverse cultural, ethnic, linguistic and faith backgrounds, which has greatly enriched our daily college experience as we learn together and from one another.
Our young people live in a complex and ever-changing world. They will face both opportunities, as well as new and yet to be defined challenges. We want to play a part in preparing them to be confident, resilient, mature, aspirational and active young people. We believe that the focus on the development of these transferable skills will help in our determination to maintain and to raise even further the excellent standards that we have. Our students attain well and achieve through a broad, well balanced and appropriate curriculum, opening many doors into higher and further education, training, or entry into the world of work.
We have one of the largest Sixth Forms in the country, attracting our own students as well as external students joining us in Year 12. We nurture a sense of belonging and pride through a caring pastoral structure providing every student, with a daily tutorial session in a house system. We focus on respect for oneself and others and expect all students to play an active part in contributing to the college community.
