What the school says...
Beech Hill Primary School is an outstanding school, led by National School Leader Nicola Nelson-Taylor. We pride ourselves in being a significant place within the local community, in which pupils, parents, friends, businesses and agencies alike, can come together and build links with each other for the benefit of the children and families we serve. With these values in mind, our vision is to provide each child with the skills, self belief and drive they need to aim high in life.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.
Nicola Nelson-Taylor Executive Head Teacher
What we think about our school: Beech Hill Primary is an outstanding school, where we make more and more progress every year. Our lessons are always fun and we never fail to learn something interesting from them. Teachers at Beech Hill are highly skilled and help us with what ever we need to learn and make progress.
To make sure our voice is heard we have a 'School Council', 'House Captains', 'Pr...efects', as well as a 'Head Boy' and 'Head Girl'. All these people have an important role in ensuring we all feel safe, happy and included.
We have a large selecton of clubs that we can attend either at lunctime or after school. What is more, you can also come to our free breakfast club or after school care club called 'Kangeroo Club'. We have a wide range of outdoor facilities that everyone can use and enjoy such as the 'trim track', 'climbing frame', 'wildlife garden' and our school pets; 'the chickens'!
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
