Headteacher’s Welcome

Mr Richard Blyghton,

Beths Grammar School offers an exciting, purposeful, vibrant and thriving community that challenges and supports students in fulfilling their academic potential whilst allowing them to smile and feel a degree of control over proceedings. Our development of the ‘whole student’ is a belief that we at Beths completely buy into.

We are a selective school in name but we are so much more in what we are able offer our students. Our primary focus is on academic achievement and our goal is to create a generation of leaders and develop well-rounded individuals who can perform at the height of their ambition. 

We aim to create young adults who are forward thinking, confident, motivated, competitive and highly successful who understand the purpose of becoming an independent learner and strive to become self-directed and comfortable with the unknown.

Beths is renowned for its strength in Mathematics, Technology and the Sciences. Our specialist facilities give students a rich experience in purpose built laboratories where they can explore the depths of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, in high-spec workshops where they can practically engage in Electronics, Graphics and Product Design and of state-of-the-art Computer rooms where they can create programs and learn to code.

As part of our Languages Specialism, the school offers our students the choice to learn French, Mandarin Chinese or Spanish from Year 7 with the opportunity to choose a second Foreign Language from Year 8 which additionally includes German, Italian and Latin.

Sport has always played an important part in the life of Beths students, both on an individual and team basis.  Our students have numerous opportunities to gain new sporting experiences both within and outside the curriculum.  We have seen our students become area, county and national champions in their chosen sports.  We have a number of individuals who are currently attending prestigious footballing, rugby and cricketing academies.  The dedication of both students and staff is a testament to the on-going success that Beths continues to experience.

With such opportunities at their disposal and a picturesque setting, Beths has so much to offer. We believe there is truly something for everyone here. 

Kind regards.

Richard Blyghton
