What says..

Very outdoorsy, pupils are encouraged to make the most of the extensive grounds; tree climbing not just allowed but encouraged and parents approve, ‘We are delighted, it’s what childhood should be about.’ The school promotes self-reliance and a robustness, ‘If you sign up for an activity you jolly well turn up for it even if the weather’s foul or you fancy doing something else.' Pupils very at ease with staff - everyone polite and courteous but nothing stiff or starchy. Tutors sit at refectory tables with their forms at lunch but...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2016, Mr Fred de Falbe (BA). Eton (a contemporary of two recent prime ministers) followed by theology at Manchester. Adventure as a ‘jackaroo’ in Australia for eight months then working in property management in London, ‘They were rock and roll years – great fun.’ Eight years teaching in state schools alongside working on the family farm in North Devon followed, then it was back to London for full-time teaching at Knightsbridge School – a popular day prep.

Special Education Needs

Beeston Hall provides SEN support at various levels, depending upon each child's specific need. At the outset children are supported in small classes through specialist teaching by dyslexia trained English staff, supported by classroom assistants. With positive reinforcement and additional individual one-to-one sessions many children thrive in confidence and rapidly come to grips with their concerns. Should a child require additional help, there is the opportunity to drop Latin and attend extra English or maths sessions instead. These small classes are, again, taken by our dyslexia trained English staff who ensure continuity. Beyond this, children can then attend a one-to-one session with the school's special needs specialist. By this stage the school would often recommend that parents seek additional guidance from an educational psychologist, with whom the school would work in close liaison. A maximum of three sessions is allowed for each pupil with the school's specialist and these sessions are charged to a parent's account.
