Barr Beacon School
As an Outstanding school, we work hard to get the best for every single one of our pupils. We are always focused on making sure we secure the best possible future for the next generation and, being a SCITT, this extends to our high quality teacher training.
Whilst forward-facing in many ways, we hold onto the best bits from the past. We are unabashedly traditional when it comes to discipline, courtesy and good manners. These values never go out of fashion and they underpin our drive for academic success.
Our school community is proudly diverse and we do not tolerate bias, prejudice or discrimination of any kind – whether conscious or unconscious – and we instil in our pupils nothing less than the urge to go out into the world and make it a better place.
