Beechwood will always strive to do the very best for every one of its pupils.
Our GCSE pupils enjoyed considerable success, with an impressive 33 Grade 9s across the year group and 38% of all grades 7 or above. Beechwood continue to out-perform the national average and this year achieved 28% higher according to Government figures. We are incredibly proud of all of our students’ achievements and wish them continued success with their future studies.
Beechwood is a non- selective school and the academic ability profile varies annually. What remains the same each year is that we work hard in our small classes so that every student achieves their potential. We set challenging targets for the students and encourage them to aim high!
An excellent, broad general curriculum is provided and examination results are strong, given the non-selective intake of the school. At Beechwood we are very proud of our academic record and the progress made by all our students. We offer 22 subjects at GCSE and 24 at A-level, and a broad, balanced curriculum in the school for younger students. Our leavers go on to study a range of courses at prestigious UK universities.
Student achievement exceeds comparative national benchmarks.
