Welcome to Beaminster

Mr Hales, Headteacher

A very warm welcome to Beaminster School.

My name is Mr Hales and I have the great pleasure of being the Headteacher.


 We are a small, family, rural school. I am fortunate to be the custodian of a school with good facilities, high standards of teaching and supportive, caring staff. We were delighted that both Ofsted, and our SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspections recognised all these qualities and affirmed that the school continues to improve and provide a very good education for all our children.


We know our students and what they need so that we can unlock the potential in every child. We believe that every young person has a set of special skills or talents and our role is to nurture them and provide relentless optimism. This means we provide learning opportunities that challenge every one of our students to reach their own goals and aspirations.


And, for us, learning is everything. We focus on the things that matter – commitment to the highest academic standards, positive relationships based on mutual respect, care, concern and generosity for others and a willingness to do things differently – that ability to adapt to the ever-changing world around  us. Our students need to be ready to compete nationally and internationally!


Learning is delivered through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that all students have opportunities to study the performing and visual arts (Music, Drama, PE, Fine Art), technology (materials, products, computing, textiles, food) and humanities, as well as the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science.


The success of our outcomes are the students I see every day, as well as the many who have left us for apprenticeships in local firms, stayed on in our 6th Form or have gone on to Universities right across Britain from studying English at Oxford, Veterinary in London to Chemistry at Edinburgh.


Choosing a secondary school can seem like a daunting process but hopefully you will have had an opportunity to see our school in action, what we stand for and the quality of work that we do, and the information on these pages whets your appetite for what we will be offering our Year 7 students. 

Take care and enjoy the videos.

This is to allow our information systems to update fully overnight.
