Working at Beaudesert Park School


Beaudesert Park offers a high-achieving, academically aspiring education, coupled with a flexible approach to after-school care and boarding. The happy family atmosphere, which upholds traditional standards, is clearly evident. Beaudesert is independent of any senior school and parents and children are given unbiased support to help them choose and prepare for their next stage of education. The purposeful, nurturing and supportive environment ensures children leave having gained not only an outstanding all-encompassing education but also confidence, friendships and memories which will last a lifetime.

The School’s aim is to prepare boys and girls for a rapidly changing world and the many challenges that lie ahead. Additionally, it is to provide our staff with continual opportunities to develop to the benefit of both the School and themselves.

Beaudesert Park School takes a particular pride in our reputation for being a caring school and recognises that this is built very much on the commitment and skills of our staff. The success of the School and the well-being of its staff depend very largely on co-operation, trust and respect between all levels of staff.

About Beaudesert Park School

An outstanding school in the beautiful surroundings of the Cotswold.


Founded in 1908 in Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire, Beaudesert Park School moved to its current site high in the Cotswolds in 1918, and became an educational trust in 1968. Once an ‘all boys, all boarding’ school, it is now a co-ed day, weekly boarding and flexi-boarding school for boys and girls aged 3-13.

The school buildings range in age from a 19th-century folly to a very modern Performing Arts Centre. Facilities are excellent as a result of continued investment. A dedicated, enthusiastic team of staff is committed to making children’s years at Beaudesert a happy and rewarding time. When they leave, children move on to a wide range of leading senior schools across the country.


We take great pride in pastoral care at Beaudesert. Every effort is made to ensure that the children feel happy and safe. To this end we introduce them through a PSHCE (Personal development, Social education, Health education, Citizenship education and Economic wellbeing) programme to the important life-skills they will need both at school and beyond. Form teachers monitor the overall development of each child. Support and advice are available from all members of the school community, and the children are encouraged to talk about any concerns. The staff meet each week to discuss pastoral issues. Our assemblies and services provide a Christian lead for all to follow, and the children are expected to abide by our code of conduct. All staff will need to ensure that they are fully conversant with our safeguarding policy and that they know how to report any concerns.


At Beaudesert, we keep class sizes small and, as well as the full range of academic subjects, children are taught art, drama, music, design, pottery, PE, ICT and PSHCE. We have high expectations of the boys and girls here, and we aim to challenge and stimulate them to enjoy learning. Pupils displaying particular talents are encouraged to excel further. Children in the Prep and Pre-Prep who need extra support are helped by our specialist Learning Support team. We begin to teach some of the main academic subjects in sets from Year 4, with the pupils being taught as a form for all other lessons. We believe that by praising effort, all children have the chance to succeed in the classroom. Both reports and parents’ evenings play their part in maintaining the important link between parents and the School. Beaudesert prepares children for a wide range of leading senior schools across the UK.


Beaudesert has a reputation for providing a superb all-round education, and the arts are an important part of that approach. We believe that children benefit enormously from having ample opportunity to perform before an audience and to express themselves through the arts. Opportunities for performance begin with our youngest children within the Pre-prep.


Beaudesert is a country school with plenty of space and superb sports facilities, including 12 acres of sports grounds, seven tennis courts (of which four are all-weather courts), two swimming pools and a large multi-purpose sports hall. There is a genuine ‘Sport for All’ philosophy, and all children are encouraged to enjoy sport. Swimming takes place all year round and all children do athletics and play tennis in the summer. Judo, fencing, squash, golf, polo, riding and cross country are also available. Children at Beaudesert are active and start to develop a love of sport and outdoor pursuits from the moment they start in the Pre-Prep.


Children may board from Year 4. We have a flexible, family-friendly approach to boarding. Some children board weekly (Monday to Friday), but the majority flexi-board, which sees children staying for one to three nights per week. Boarding is fun at Beaudesert and helps build self-confidence with a huge range of evening activities to enjoy, not to mention the delicious suppers and breakfasts.
