Beech Hall School Shortlisted for Prestigious Award

Beech Hall School has been shortlisted for a much-coveted national accolade in the highly-regarded ISA Awards, for the fourth consecutive year.

 

We have been recognised for our exceptional and inclusive sports provision, fighting off stiff competition from independent schools around the UK to be shortlisted for the ISA Award for Outstanding Sport (Small School) 2020. 

 

We pride ourselves on providing opportunity and exclusivity for all, Beech Hall School actively encourages our pupils to participate in both friendly and competitive sporting fixtures. Alongside the more traditional team sports of football, rugby, basketball, netball and hockey, pupils are able to take part in volleyball, fives, golf, skiing, mountain-biking, swimming, and horse-riding - a diverse array of activities which has prompted the school’s desired shortlisting. 

 

Notably, the school’s outdoor swimming pool, alongside the extensive extra-curricular activities that it provides, has further contributed to this nomination. In addition to children swimming in their PE lessons and family-bubbles, pupils are encouraged to compete with twice weekly water polo clubs, and this year has also seen a new development in the form of the Ice Swim Club. 

 

Headmaster, James Allen, commented: “Congratulations to every pupil and staff member who has contributed to this fantastic recognition of Beech Hall’s achievements. We are delighted to be shortlisted for this highly-respected award.”

 

Continuing, Mr Allen said, “At Beech Hall, we offer a breadth of opportunity in the hope that every pupil can be encouraged into playing some form of sport and, if they wish, take part on a competitive level. We believe that our pupils are comfortable and keen to take part in sport, providing a platform for developing lifelong attitudes to exercise and the extended values that this promotes which support and enhance the broader development of pupils’ lives.”
