How to apply

Beeston Hall is not academically selective; we simply aim to identify pupils who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education, therefore enabling them to reach their potential. The ability range of pupils is wide. We stretch the most able and support those with any learning difficulties they may have so that they are ready or able to meet challenges and reach beyond them.

As part of the entry process all pupils will have a taster day and will be given an informal assessment within this to establish their current level of ability and likely potential.

Scholarships days are held in the Lent term to attract children with particular talents and families who appreciate the benefits of a Beeston education.  No fee remission or public honour is attached to a scholarship, as we believe such labels for younger children are not necessarily helpful, but all scholarships can be underpinned by bursary assistance if the financial circumstances of an individual family necessitate it.  All awards are conditional upon upholding of the values and ethos of the school.

If you would like to consider a place at Beeston for your child, we would encourage you to come and visit us. The Headmaster would be delighted to give you a tour of the school, and introduce you to staff and pupils. If you think your child would enjoy Beeston, they can choose to come for a taster day, before you formally apply for a place by returning the completed Registration Form and fee.

A year before entry, we will then ask for a first term deposit to secure your child’s place.


‘Given a solid grounding, Beestonians go on to do well and make the most of their senior schools.
