Beechwood is a fully co-educational day and boarding school situated in a large campus overlooking open countryside. Situated close to the historic town centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells, it is within easy reach of London, Heathrow and Gatwick airports (less than one hour).
Boarding helps boys and girls to become more independent whilst still benefiting from the care and attention of experienced, dedicated staff.
Boarding is provided in comfortable, modern accommodation throughout, in single rooms for Sixth- Formers (Years 12 and 13) and two-or three-bedded rooms for younger students (Years 7-11). More than 80% of our students are from the UK, while our boarders include a range of nationalities from the UK and across the world. Beechwood encourages high standards and values – honesty, respect and consideration for others.
All Sixth-Form students enjoy their own single study bedrooms. After school, students can attend school clubs and activities before returning to their boarding houses for supper and supervised study. In the evening, boarders can relax and socialise in common rooms. The Sixth-Form have their own kitchen in which hot drinks, snacks and simple meals can be prepared.
Most boarders choose to stay at Beechwood at the weekends to take advantage of school facilities and the extensive grounds. We organise a varied programme of cultural and entertaining activities to include outdoor activities, workshops in school, sporting and theatre outings and visits to places of interest. Boarders may visit friends or relatives on any weekend, with prior parental permission.
