Beths Grammar School Logo

Beths Grammar School is committed to meeting expectations and achieving excellence.
This is reflected in our aims:

• To enable each student to maximise their academic potential and develop his individual talents

• To provide education with character embracing a wide range of enrichment activities

• To provide a stimulating, caring and secure environment building on traditional values and standards

• To challenge students to acquire individual responsibility respecting the views, values and beliefs of others whilst developing their own• To create a culture which reflects our technologically advanced era and embraces innovation

• To work with a wide range of partners to ensure young people are able to take full advantage of the lifetime opportunities open to them.

From our students we expect the highest standard of personal conduct, the best possible academic performance and a real commitment to the wider life of the school. In return we provide a stimulating yet demanding approach to teaching and learning. Further by working in partnership with parents we seek to ensure each student's individual needs are met.

Through their time at Beths Grammar School we help young men and, in the Sixth Form, young women, develop the skills and qualities they need for higher education and later life.


Providing the best academic education within a culture that reflects our technologically advanced era, is at the heart of what our curriculum offers. All students follow the core subjects of the National Curriculum. In Year 8 a second foreign language is added and in Year 9 additional time is given to ICT to enable all students to achieve a high level of competence in preparation for the 14-19 curriculum.

A full range of courses is offered at GCSE, AS and A Level where there is a choice of some 30 subjects.  

In several subjects gifted students take GCSEs early and they commence AS Level work.

This is one example of how flexibility in our 14-19 provision ensures each student's individual needs are met.
From Year 7 to Year 13 our regular monitoring and assessment ensures all students achieve to the very best of their abilities and enable us to match the curriculum to students' aptitudes and interests.

Mark did exceptionally well at GCSE gaining 6 A* and 5 A grades. Mark is now studying for
A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

In Year 10 he attended a Chemistry Summer Camp at Brighton University.

Mark says "This really sparked my interest and opened my eyes to the diversity and scope of the subject. My aim is to study Biochemistry at University leading to a career in Medical Research."


As well as being a Grammar School, Beths is a specialist Technology College. Our curriculum has its foundations firmly in the best grammar schooltradition, however in its delivery we are at the forefront of modern technologies.

In this area we cannot stand still and we are committed to ongoing development of our facilities, both in terms of networked ICT suites and the technological provision which is integrated into our classrooms, laboratories, workshops and studios.

 "I chose Beths Grammar School because the staff and students were very kind and helpful. I also liked the look of the vast range of educational equipment; including the fantastic ICT suites and the Learning Resource Centre.

I thought the 'Kart Club' looked fun and interesting - and I still think so! Beths is Great!!!"


The breadth of our curricular and extracurricular programmes ensures that all students are given the opportunity to take part in a whole range of sporting activities. All boys represent their house in competitive matches and many are given the chance to represent the school through an extensive programme of regular school fixtures in a wide range of sports.

Our teams have enjoyed considerable success in recent years winning a large number of trophies in Athletics, Cricket, Cross-country, Rugby and Soccer.

Individuals in these sports as well as Swimming, Diving, Triathlon and Judo, regularly gain representative honours at District and County levels
