Unique Characteristics Curriculum: This heavily over-subscribed, distinctive, traditional and high-achieving school offers an exceptional all-round education. The vibrant and unpretentiously academic curriculum of predominantly GCSEs and A Levels includes the Extended Project Qualification and inspirational super curricular and Future Horizons programmes.
Pastoral: The pastoral system revolves around the house system. Each student is placed into one of five houses. In lower school house tutor groups, boys of all year groups are mixed together which helps to contribute to the Beechen Cliff family atmosphere about which so many visitors comment.
Extra Curricular: Whilst one of the strongest in the region for academic achievement, the school’s commitment to the developing and celebrating activities beyond the classroom is legendary. These range from the character developing outdoor challenges (Centurion Challenge, Ten Tors, Three Peaks, Coast-to- Coast cycle ride) to the performing arts. In addition the long-established musical activities the sell-out Bands Nights and the spectacular Musical Theatre Production week have become new highlights on the school calendar. Sport at Beechen Cliff needs no introduction!
