Secondary School

When your child is in Year 5 and/or Year 6, you’ll begin to look at the exciting prospect of your child starting secondary school, and continuing their journey in education.

When choosing a secondary school, it’s important to consider their ethos, school culture, timetable, size and location. We’ve created this page to help you to consider which secondary school might be the best fit for you, and to begin to plan your child’s next steps.

Beauchamp College

Beauchamp College is an ‘Outstanding’ 11-19 school, just a whisker away from the neighbouring Brocks Hill.
Like Brocks Hill, the school is part of the Lionheart Educational Trust. This means that students from Brocks Hill can expect to experience the same exacting standards of excellence, now through a 14-year-journey. Staff at Beauchamp already work regularly with students at Brocks Hill, meaning that your child will likely see familiar, friendly faces in their transition to Year 7.

Beauchamp College has superb transition support in place for new students entering Year 7, designed to ensure that every individual begins secondary school feeling confident and safe. With a huge site and state-of-the-art facilities, including a 3G Pitch and modern Design Studio, students are always inspired by their surroundings when learning.

Part of the 14-year-journey, Beauchamp also has a strong history of sending students on to the most prestigious university and careers paths; with over a third attending Russell-Group universities each year.

At Beauchamp, you can be safe in the knowledge that your child will not only have the tools and needed to succeed in their ambitions, but be fully supported in them too.
