Letter to parents - Public Examinations Summer 2020

Ofqual letter to students

Beechwood School Top of the League

Beechwood School is delighted to share that its Sixth Form provision has been identified as the strongest in Slough in terms of the progress students make and their examination outcomes.

The Government shares data on all post-16 providers (schools, academies and colleges) and the information just published shows that student results at Beechwood are top within the Slough Local Authority area. Indeed, the national data on all state funded academies, schools and colleges shows that Beechwood is in the top 2% nationally with regards to examination outcomes.

This is a great achievement and something very special for the young people and families who are part of the Beechwood School community which is located on the Britwell Estate.

Headteacher, Kathleen Higgins, states:

‘I am absolutely delighted that our school is now one of the best in the country for its Sixth Form provision in light of the great results that students achieve'.

I am so thrilled for our young people and so very proud of them.  They have achieved really great things thanks to their hard work and also thanks to the excellent way in which they work in partnership with our team of highly committed, expert and hardworking members of staff.

It is such a privilege to see our young people flourish and excel.  These results assure them of great futures. As our school goes from strength to strength, it also assures all current students that they have the opportunity to achieve fantastically well.   There is a great deal to look forward to.

Headteacher's Welcome

September 2019

Welcome to Beechwood. I sincerely hope that our website gives you some insight into the vibrant, dynamic, ambitious, happy and successful community that we are. If you would like to learn more about our school, you are warmly invited to visit us. Please call us to arrange a time to tour our school and meet our wonderful young people and staff.  Similarly if you require any information from our website and would prefer a hard copy, please contact us.

I feel totally privileged to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school community. Having worked in a range of schools for 31 years, 16 of which as a Headteacher, I can confidently state that there is something very special about Beechwood. The community spirit is so strong. The commitment of staff is absolutely exceptional and our young people are truly inspired and achieve great things as a consequence. This is the reality because of our special set of ‘Beechwood Values’

We value all.

We respect all.

We believe in all.

We see the good and potential in all.

We have a strong sense of all having an entitlement to experience excellence & success.

We are all determined to ‘do our best to be the best that we can be’.

These values determine everything we do and aspire to achieve together every day. We have a School Motto

Try our best to do our best to be the best!

This is known by all and acted upon by all every day. Our motto is our daily reality and reflects the extremely high standards which are secured. This greatness was no more clearly seen than this summer when our senior students achieved so well in their public examinations. Our Sixth Form students secured record breaking results for our school and there was some exceptional individual outcomes for Year 11 students where targets were significantly exceeded. The 2017 to 2018 academic year was therefore a highly successful one for our school and we are very much looking forward to going from strength-to-strength this forthcoming year.

In light of this, when parents entrust their child in to our care, I completely make a promise.

  • Your child will be treated as an individual whose individual needs are identified and met.
  • Your child will be supported to grow and achieve academically and socially.
  • Your child will have a very broad and complete education.
  • Your child will thrive, succeed and be able to fulfil their hopes, dreams and ambitions.

The fulfilment of this promise and therefore the experience of life as a Beechwood student, simply means that we are exceptionally proud of all of our young people. They achieve great things, they have great futures ahead of them, they are, indeed, simply great!

We hope you find this website helpful; if you would prefer to receive any information contained here as a hard copy please let us know and we would be pleased to send this to you.
