What says..

Advocates of the ‘real world’ undoubtedly educate their children elsewhere and even its biggest fans concede that there is a Beaudesert bubble, but ...

What the school says...

A thriving, bustling place, Beaudesert is that rare thing - a great school of a decent size, in the heart of the country, and yet within truly easy reach of cities, motorways and trains. Fantastic facilities, a truly all-round approach to education and great academic results have all helped make Beaudesert a hugely popular choice with locals as well as with people moving into Cotswolds villages from the hustle and bustle of London amongst other places. Confident children and their happy parents help make word of mouth the best marketing tool for this school. ...Read more
