Welcome To

The New Beacon

The New Beacon is a place of energy and success, for individual boys and for the entire school community.  We know what makes boys tick, from the sensitive to the ebullient, and a clear mission, high expectations and excellent teaching lead to achievement: they can all be found in this Prep School.

The New Beacon community is broad, rich and colourful, as we hope will be evident in this multi lingual welcome video. We celebrate our joyous diversity!
