School Information

Beths Grammar School is a selective academy for boys aged 11-16 with a mixed Sixth Form.  There are currently 192 student places in each year group in years 7-11.  The anticipated capacity for the 6th Form (Years 12 and 13 combined) is 700).

In 1995 the school was awarded Technology College Status.  In 2005 we were identified as one of the first High Performing Specialist Schools and, in 2006, took on a second specialism in languages.  Following an Outstanding Ofsted grading in 2007, Beths became, in 2008, a National Support School.  In 2009 the school added a third specialism to its portfolio, as a Leadership Partner School. 

The international dimension offered by the language specialism is of great value in the modern world.  We offer Mandarin Chinese as well as French, German and Spanish, and the various opportunities that arise include visits to China. In May 2010 we became a ‘Confucius Classroom’ – a hub school for Mandarin Chinese.

Beths Grammar School was last inspected by Ofsted in 2022, when it was judged Good in; the quality of education, personal development, leadership and management, sixth-form provision and Outstanding behaviour and attitudes.

At Beths you will find an ethos in which working hard and wanting to achieve are the norm.  We are ambitious for the young people in our care and seek to help them to secure the very best outcomes of which they are capable.  But Beths is also a supportive, harmonious and caring environment.  We respect and celebrate the diversity that exists amongst our students and staff.  The school is renowned for its enviable co-curricular enrichment programme that, through sport, the arts and music, clubs and societies, nurtures the whole person.

Among the various ways that we seek to develop the students’ leadership skills are the thriving School Council, student-led assemblies, the Duke of Edinburgh Award and, in the 6th Form, the Student Leadership Team of School Captain, Vice Captains, House Captains and Prefects.
