A leading day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 4 - 13 yrs set in the idyllic North Norfolk Coast
 

Enrichment Programme

Fostering and developing academic curiosity is a key aim of the school. We recognize that children learn at different times, in different ways and so provide as many ‘flints’ as we can, to create the sparks and flames of intellectual passion. A varied and stimulating curriculum is enriched by workshops and clubs, trips and competitions, events and extension work, available to pupils throughout Beeston.  Whether the bespoke pre-test and scholarship preparation programme, or leavers’ lectures and visiting speakers, children have many opportunities to build on their discoveries and explorations. 

We fully recognize that even single, unique moments can have profound impact on children’s learning. This really is adding value! We capitalize on our outstanding natural environment of North Norfolk, as well as going further afield. Besides school trips to Spain, Italy and France, children regular travel for sports tournaments and national competitions.  What follows is a list of recent events and visits undertaken by the children:
