A truly all-round education
THERE are 430 boys and girls aged three to 13 at Beaudesert Park School, Minchinhampton, an ever-popular independent school, and all living within 20 miles.
Flexi-boarding (one to three nights per week) in the cosy boarding rooms is super popular among the older children.
» A refreshing ‘all-round’ approach From nursery upwards, Beaudesert’s focus is on helping every child thoroughly enjoy a truly “allround” education, which includes heaps of opportunities to experiment and excel in the arts, sport and beyond. There’s no selection process, and no hot-house pressure, yet academic results are certainly impressive.
At 13 the children move on to a broad range of secondary and senior schools. This year they did so with a bumper crop of more than 20 scholarships between them. » What do parents say?
Parents speak of great teaching, standout pastoral care and a happy, confidence-building school. Fantastic facilities include three science labs, a theatrespec performing arts centre, 15 acres of sports grounds, two swimming pools, and two Forest Schools.
The Good Schools Guide 2019 said: “Happiness isn’t a subject to be taught; it should be the founding principle of any school – it certainly is at Beaudesert.”
