School Ethos

"A life-changing school where education and opportunity lead the way to a brighter future. We inspire, encourage and nurture all our students to learn more, do more and be more."


The Beacon of Light School welcomes students aged 13-16 years who are experiencing challenges in mainstream education, creating an environment where everyone can learn more, do more, and be more.

During their time in our care, our team of highly qualified and experienced teaching staff collectively work towards our school ethos, creating individual and innovative learning programmes that are as unique as each student, designed to inspire, excite, motivate and re-engage every young person.

By encouraging our students’ aspirations, we can unlock their true potential, increase confidence and self-esteem, and promote personal growth, in a safe, respectful and supportive environment.

Our Vision, Mission and Values

At the Beacon of Light School, we are committed to the education, welfare and wellbeing of our students — creating a positive educational journey, unique to each individual. By placing young people at the centre of their learning experience, we aim to support and motivate our students to learn more, do more and be more.

Within The Beacon building, we are providing a world-class environment for innovative, creative learning experiences at the heart of the community. We are also looking to transform communities and lives through collaborative real-world educational opportunities.

We aim to:

  • Educate each young person as an individual
    • Aim high, value achievement and take pride in student success
    • Promote opportunity, optimism and positivity
    • Foster dignity, respect and fairness
    • Provide a supportive environment to aid the learning and personal development of all students
    • Prepare students effectively for a sustainable life beyond school

Our focus to achieving these goals is underpinned by a strong pastoral system, which includes positive partnerships between home and school, to provide a high level of support for all. We pride ourselves on the regular contact with parents/carers and outside agencies involved with each young person and ensure all aims align with their needs.
