Additional Information

Beechwood is a co-educational independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 -18, which comprises a Pre-Prep, Preparatory and Senior School. It is a thriving, happy and purposeful place where excellence and a love of learning are nurtured.

The children at Beechwood are at the heart of everything that we do. Their enthusiasm and passions are nurtured by a dedicated team of teachers who inspire our students to give of their very best both in and outside the classroom, at school and at home.

Our international day and boarding community for boys and girls aged 3-18 is set in 21 acres of beautiful parkland in the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells. With 23 subjects at A Level including Photography, Art, Textiles, DT, Drama, Music, Psychology and Business Studies as well as the more traditional subjects we allow students at all levels to play to their strengths and study the subjects that really excite them.

We are always happy to welcome visitors to our school where students conduct guided tours of the facilities and you will have the opportunity to meet either myself or the Head of the Prep School.

We consider all children for admission to the school who have the ability and aptitude to access an academic curriculum. Pupils whose SEND are suited to the curriculum are welcome, provided that we have the appropriate resources and facilities to provide them with the support that they require.

Subject to this, the school will be sensitive to any requests for confidentiality. Where considered necessary, the school will arrange special early admissions meetings with parents of prospective pupils to discuss special arrangements.
