Development at The New Beacon


First Class Education and First Class Facilities

The New Beacon has a long history of academic excellence.  The boys are offered an education based on a broad curriculum, all designed and delivered by well-qualified staff.  As well as our academic strengths, we have an enviable tradition of sporting success and a comprehensive, wide-ranging music programme.

Having moved to the present Brittains Lane site in January 1900, the New Beacon has for most of its life been housed within a set of purpose-built buildings. As the school grew in size and the demands of the curriculum changed so did the facilities develop too.

The table below shows major development projects since 1980.
