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 I have no doubt they achieve more here than in any school I have led.  A clear mission, high expectations and excellent teaching lead to achievement: they can all be found in this Prep School.

In the classroom, on the sports field, in the music room, the art, design and technology departments, or even in the way members of the school community support each other, New Beacon boys strive for personal excellence. It is our ambition to help them in this and in reaching their full potential.

Enjoy browsing our website which gives a flavour of what we do and of the achievements of New Beacon boys.  Do contact us for further information or to arrange a visit – you need to feel the positive, happy atmosphere!

We’re thrilled and honoured to be one of this year’s winners at the Kent Mental Health & Wellbeing Awards.  We already support the mental health charity Mind and take advantage of their excellent training.  All being well, they will participate in our twice postponed conference next May: Helping Young People Navigate the 21st Century.

To receive such an award we thank all those who must have nominated The New Beacon.  We like to think our efforts to look after not just the boys over the last 18 months but also the school community and wider local community have helped to bring us through such a challenging time.  To be recognised in this way is very special.
