We are incredibly excited about the prospect of seeing young people develop during their time at Beauchamp and want to work closely in partnership with parents/carers and their children. Making a decision about where to send your child to study can often be difficult, however we believe that Beauchamp offers the very best opportunity for academic success and the most rewarding journey from Year 7 to 11 and onto KS5, work, or further training.
The high standards and aspirations of our young people coupled with inspirational teaching means students at Beauchamp College demonstrate exceptional achievement and we are proud of the fact that Beauchamp is consistently placed among the best schools in Leicestershire and beyond. This success is based on the commitment and curiosity of the wonderful Beauchamp students, encouraging parent/carer engagement, the enthusiasm and experience of all staff, and the supportive monitoring of academic and holistic development of all learners.
As our students come from a range of cultural, ethnic, economic, linguistic and faith backgrounds, this has greatly enriched our daily college experience as we learn together and from one another. Inspired by this diversity we believe in pursuing excellence and equity for all. As a result, every year our students prove they can compete successfully in all fields as they move onto university, work and other training opportunities such as apprenticeships.
We feel privileged to work at Beauchamp and believe it is a fantastic college that provides our students with a high quality education, continual support and a huge range of other opportunities. To get a flavour of this we invite all prospective students and their parents/carers for a tour of our college during the college day so that you can get a true view of our daily college routine.
Over the last two years, Beauchamp has run close to 100 trips. Some of the highlights included trips to France, Tanzania and Los Angeles. Out-of-classroom learning makes a unique contribution to a students’ education and offers many varied benefits. At Beauchamp College students have many opportunities to access these activities within various departments. During the Summer of 2018 students and staff travelled to Tanzania to take part in voluntary work with Camps International. In 2020 a similar trip will take place to Costa Rica. Students have also had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles with Media Studies. A ski trip to Austria is planned for 2019 which will enable many students to demonstrate their resilience, as they master their technique. Many UK residentials have also taken place during the year.
At Beauchamp, our aim is to provide a curriculum that engages and challenges all students and supports our vision of academic excellence and holistic development. The introduction of our KS3 provision in September 2017 has enabled us to view our curriculum as a 7 year journey which will equip our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to progress through life with confidence and engender a life-long love of learning.
On behalf of all students, staff, governors and parents, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and to Beauchamp’s Alumni Society. Let me take this opportunity to introduce the aims of the Alumni Society to you and commend its intention to seek your involvement and support for our students and for your past college.
We believe that Every student, regardless of background, should have access to an exciting curriculum offer and the opportunity to make outstanding progress from their starting points. It is our vision that we strive to enrich the lives of young people in order to help them grow into confident, well-rounded citizens who play an active part in school life and the wider community. Through the 4Rs we want to develop active and independent learners who can take ownership of their educational journey as well as feel ready to one day enter the wider-world.
The College definition for SEN and for disability comes from the SEND Code of Practice (2014). This states that a child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age. Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England.
The best available evidence indicates that great teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve student progress and attainment. Ensuring every teacher is supported in delivering high-quality teaching is essential to achieving the best outcomes for all students, particularly the most disadvantaged among them. Robust high expectations with effective scaffolding, cognitive and metacognitive approaches to learning in all classrooms is the core of the school offer.
But occasionally a little more support is required and starts within the classroom setting. Well designed and data driven in lesson intervention that uses on-going assessment including retrieval practice is the next stage of support. Interventions are SMART and reviewed regularly. Strategies like flexible groupings, allocated seating, instant feedback and live marking have shown positive impact on progress within our classrooms. Our nurture provision in maths and English allows for lower teacher: pupil ratios and a higher level of immediate feedback and adaptive teaching for students who need it the most. An experienced Teaching Assistant team provide in class support for students who are most vulnerable and work collaboratively with teachers to support students to make progress in their learning.
As a College we collaboratively with Special Educational Needs authorities at Leicester County Council and Leicester City Council as well as a wide range of specialist services so that students who have been formally diagnosed with medical or SEN needs receive the support, they need from professional bodies in order to flourish.
