Beacon Hill School
Erriff Drive, RM15 5AY, UK South Ockendon
+44 (0)1708 852006

Beacon Hill School is a new school opened in September 2004, following the amalgamation of two existing special schools; Woodacre and Knightsmead. We currently operate on the two previous sites in South Ockendon. The main site in Erriff Drive has facilities for pupils of 3-16 years, and the post 16 Provision is a short distance away on a site shared with Treetops School's new Childrens Centre. The school cateers for pupils/students who have Profound and Severe Learning Difficulties and Neurological Impairment.

This is our school, photographed from Erriff Drive.

We hope you find our site useful and informative. Primarily, we intend this site to be a tool by which parents and guardians, relatives, staff and friends of the school can keep abreast of events here at Beacon Hill. This site is also intended to promote the achievements of our pupils, as well as the school itself. We would be happy to recieve your feedback. If you have any queries or suggestions for the site, please click here.


'Achievement has no boundaries'

Our Ethos and Aims contain the fundamental strands and context for the curriculum.


Beacon Hill will provide a learning environment where individual needs are recognised and supported. We will ensure that all pupils are given access to a curriculum that offers opportunities to access as wide a range of experiences as possible, acknowledging that a small step for one may be a giant leap for another. We will encourage and celebrate achievement at all levels, and help pupils to reach the highest personal standards to enable them to become valued members of the community.


To have high expectations of good behaviour, attitude and personal endeavour in all areas of the curriculum and the life of the school.

To help pupils to develop inquiring minds, self-respect, self-discipline and a positive outlook on life.

To create an open, supportive atmosphere where each individual, irrespective of needs, race, age or gender knows that they are a valued member of the school community.

To develop a curriculum that offers challenge to the teacher and the learner, and promotes spiritual, social and emotional development.

To involve the whole school community, pupils, staff, parents, carers, govenors and the wider community in working as a team to make education fun!


Beacon Hill was opened in September 2004 following the closure of two of South Ockendon's specialist schools, Woodacre and Knightsmead. Beacon Hill will continue to evolve in order to establish it's place at the forefront of Special Needs Education, and it is proposed that it will in 2006 move to a new purpose-built site in partnership with our friends and colleagues at near-by Treetops School.
