Welcome to Beech Hall School

Beech Hall School offers a distinct and exciting alternative to larger independent schools for parents and their children, providing a breadth of educational opportunities and a high level of individual attention within a beautiful environment. We aim to keep class sizes small to enable us to provide this individual care.

Beech Hall is a non-selective independent school for boys and girls aged 6 months to 18 years.

Set in 16 beautiful acres on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Beech Hall is a small but perfectly formed school with a family feel where pupils enjoy coming to school and thrive in our nurturing, supportive environment that focuses on them as individuals.

Our small classes and a focus on each and every child enables Beech Hall pupils to fulfil their potential both in the classroom and beyond it. We believe extra-curricular opportunities are as important as GCSE outcomes. A balanced focus on academic attainment, sporting opportunities, artistic endeavour, individual strengths and a celebration of traditional values are at the core of everything that is important to us at Beech Hall.

Our vision is for all Beech Hall pupils, their families and colleagues to wake up and bounce into school, excited to learn and work in a genuinely inclusive and respectful learning environment that empowers every child to believe, achieve and become the best version of themselves.

At Beech Hall, we know what makes children happy, we know how to enable them to achieve academically, and we know how to provide them with the very best opportunities to shine as individuals. I would be delighted to welcome you to Beech Hall and show you around our exceptional school. James Allen Headmaster Beech Hall School.
