The curriculum at Beeston is designed to enable every child to reach his or her potential and prepare him or her for life after Beeston. Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences drives our curriculum planning and values: the personal and social, the creative and physical, the moral and spiritual and the logical and linguistic.
The traditional academic disciplines, including Latin, are complemented by music and drama, art, computing, design and technology and FSA-approved Forest School. Together with a very full games and activities programme, this broad and varied curriculum supports our holistic approach to education.
First class teaching from dedicated, motivated and well-qualified staff combined with small class sizes enable us to aim high for each child whilst allowing them to develop at the correct pace. Each department is run by a subject-specialist head and departments are well resourced. We have purpose-built Design Technology and Art centre and well- equipped IT and computing. The classes are small, set where appropriate, reflecting the requirements of the scholarship and /or entrance exams at 13, with children aided where necessary by a remarkably well-resourced Learning Support department.
