Head of School's Welcome

Our vision is to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.

The Beech Academy, which is part of the Evolve Trust is a high achieving Special Education Needs School with a great tradition of success. We believe that an outstanding education develops our students academically, socially and morally, giving them the skills to be successful in whatever they do once they have left us.
We also feel it is important for our young people to develop outside of the classroom and we offer a wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities to help prepare our students for the next stage of their education, training or employment.

Executive Principal's Welcome

Welcome to The Beech Academy and The Evolve Trust. I am extremely proud to be the Executive Principal and work with Neil Davies (Head of school) to ensure that Beech continues to provide a first class education to all of our students. We are absolutely resolute in our vision to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.

At Beech we know that all of our students have individual needs and that we need to remove the barriers to enable them to have bright futures. We aim to provide all students with opportunities to develop and flourish in a wide range of subjects, and to offer experiences outside of the norm so that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment.

We hope you find this website useful and we would be delighted to show you around our academy so you can see for yourselves, the first class education and experiences our students receive.     
    
  • At the Beech Academy, as part of the Evolve Trust, we work on a daily basis to turn ‘I cant’s in to I cans’.
  • We want to create curious minds whilst developing the skills for learning and life. We ensure that all of our school community are proud
  • All young people are entitled to a first class education and this is irrespective of starting points, postcode, financial disadvantage or Special Educational Need.
  • Our young people at Beech are provided with the very best educational provision and we endeavour to ensure equity with their more advantaged peers so they can achieve well
  • The values of Ambition, Integrity, Inclusivity, Endeavour and Resilience run through everything we do and are lived every day. We believe these are the bedrock of supporting our young people.
