Autumn Term :
News from Beechen Cliff School


Beechen Cliff School is a unique school in many respects. The website gives you a taste of some of the special qualities which make Beechen Cliff stand out, but you need to visit and meet the boys to fully understand why Beechen Cliff is different from other schools in Bath and beyond.

We aim to provide the best possible education for each pupil, to prepare each pupil for adulthood and to set the highest possible standards in all areas of school life; academic, sporting and beyond. We know every pupil. Individuals matter and visitors comment on the friendliness and confidence of the pupils.

I very much hope that you are able to visit us in order that you can understand how this pride and determination manifests itself in our day to day work
