The Beaconsfield School A specialist Arts College


TBS Vision is: • To ensure every student realises their potential, through every member of our community having high aspirations for success, both within and beyond the classroom. 

TBS curriculum aims are:  

  • To ensure students gain the knowledge, skills and qualifications they require to progress onto further education, apprenticeships or employment 
  • To develop confident, responsible and articulate young people who are well prepared for life in modern Britain 

TBS values are: • Respect • Empathy • Hardwork • Community • Responsibility 


At The Beaconsfield School, we teach Personal, Social, Health Education as a whole-school approach to underpin students’ development as people and because we believe that this also supports their learning capacity.  

Statutory RSE and Health Education  

“The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019, made under sections 34 and 35 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, make Relationships and Sex Education compulsory for all pupils receiving secondary education 


At The Beaconsfield School we allocate  one lesson a week to PSHE each week for years 7, 8 & 6th Form as well as drop down days for years 9, 10 and 11 in order to teach the PSHE/RSHE knowledge and skills in a developmental and age-appropriate way. Students will also receive 1 mentor time session per week. These explicit lessons are reinforced and enhanced in many ways:   

  • Assemblies linked to the half term PSHE/RSHE themes
  • Reward system
  • TBS Values linked into PSHE/RSHE
  • Through relationships student to student, adult to student and adult to adult across the school.  
  • We aim to ‘live’ what is learnt and apply it to everyday situations in the school community.
  • School community events. 
  • Enrichment opportunities.
