Welcome

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you, and thank you for visiting the new website for Beech Hall School.

Beech Hall is a non-selective independent school for boys and girls aged 6 months to 16 years. Situated in a beautiful sixteen-acre site on the edge of the Peak District, housing two listed buildings, playing fields and swimming pool, we are proud to be able to provide a truly child-centred approach to education, ensuring that the school's goal - where children come first - really is a reality.

Small classes and a focus on the individual child mean that quality teaching and learning lead to success. However, we believe, opportunities beyond the curriculum are just as important as those in the classroom as we seek to provide a truly unique curriculum for every child. A balanced focus on academic attainment, sporting opportunities, emphasising individual strengths and celebrating traditional values are at the core of everything that is important to us at Beech Hall.

The school has recently been acquired by The Riverston Group. This has provided a much-needed injection of capital investiture, including new offices, changing facilities, renovated and decorated classrooms and other teaching facilities to highlight just a few of the recent changes. The Riverston Group is committed to providing an education utterly focused on the individual child and visitors will attest to this in the clear child-focused ethos of the school.

We, and the staff at Beech Hall, have the highest standards of expectation for our children and the quality to which we believe they are entitled. This means that processes to ensure individual achievement are rigorous, and opportunities for pupils to participate in the widest variety of ways are multiple and varied. Communication remains a three-way process throughout our children's education, ensuring that your child, their teachers and you work collaboratively to achieve happiness and success.

As Beech Hall School moves into the next very exciting stage in its development, we would be delighted to welcome you to the school. Come and talk to us about your child and how we can help them to achieve success, in whatever form it takes for them. We look forward to meeting you.

 Mr J D Allen, Headmaster
