Welcome to Beacon Academy

Beacon Academy opened on 1st September 2017 as part of the Wellspring Academy Trust

We are an exciting, expanding, inclusive and dynamic secondary academy which places the student at the heart of our provision. Our distinctive ethos of ‘Human Scale Education’ sets us apart from other schools. At Beacon Academy your child will be known as an individual, supported and provided with opportunities to achieve academically and to develop as a young person.

Within our distinctive ethos we provide your child with opportunities, interventions and watch them thrive. We will continue to build upon solid foundations as an academy rated ‘Good’ by OFSTED. Regional champions in sports, poetry, photography and performing arts are just some examples of how your child will develop those crucial ‘soft skills’ needed to flourish in an ever changing world.

Our Vision

Academic excellence will be achieved through Outstanding and innovative teaching and learning led by skilled and dedicated staff and through a personalised curriculum through which pupils are highly engaged and motivated. We will never lose sight of the importance of the individual and all learning will take place in a setting which promotes respect for self and others, good conduct, collaboration with others and contribution to the common good.

Beacon Academy will provide a safe and supporting environment. We will continue to place great importance on the happiness of all of our pupils. We will promote a strong sense of school community, a collective identity and an environment in which the self-worth of each individual is developed and respected.

We will maintain a commitment to providing outstanding learning opportunities for all students. Lessons will engage, stimulate, challenge and stretch learners and enable all to reach their full potential.
