New Talent Day - 12th March, 2018
The Governors of Beechwood Park School are offering means tested support, up to 100% fee remission to boys and girls wishing to join our School in Year 7 (September 2018) who can demonstrate outstanding talent in and out of the classroom.
Joining Beechwood Park at Year 7
Every year, new pupils join us for Years 7 and Year 8 (or Top Form as it is known at Beechwood Park) for the final two-year Common Entrance Programme, through which we prepare children for admission in Year 9 to a wide variety day and boarding schools.
Children love their final two years at Beechwood Park and we enjoy watching the huge academic and personal development that these years provide for our oldest pupils. A significant proportion of our pupils will go on to Year 9 in their chosen Senior Independent School with some form of scholarship or award. The majority of these schools also offer fee assisted places subject to means-testing. For further information, click here to read ; Why should I join Beechwood Park at Year 7?
