Educational Ethos

Our ethos at The Beeches Independent School is to ensure our pupils:

• Develop an understanding of the world in which they live.

• Have sound numeracy, literacy, and ICT skills.

• Develop personal and moral values, a respect for shared values, cultures and religions.

• Acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life.

• Take their place in society as informed, confident, and responsible citizens.


Our curriculum is designed to be relevant across all age ranges, connecting each pupil with the acquisition of knowledge, skills and understanding related to minimising the effects of the Triad of Impairment in Autism. This design makes meaningful connections for pupils, therefore maximising their potential for success, access and independence.
