Pupils who are offered and accept a place at Beech House School are expected to accept and conform to the school’s policies and rules. As already outlined, these are straightforward, but nevertheless are there to ensure high standards of behaviour, discipline, dress and academic levels. School uniform is compulsory for all students who attend the school as is the completion of homework and attendance at any obligatory out-of-school activities, such as Speech Night. Good work, behaviour and attitude are rewarded through the merit and house point systems.
By operating an ‘open door’ policy, conflict rarely occurs. However, we always retain the right to exclude any pupil who is not prepared to accept the school’s policy as outlined on the website, in the school rules or any subsequent notice.
Beech House School has a policy similar to most Independent schools for children entering the Preparatory and Senior department. A minimum of two terms` notice is required in the Nursery and a minimum of one term’s notice, in writing, for the rest of the school is required, on or before, the first day of term, of the intention to remove a pupil from the school. Failure to provide this notice in writing means that the next term’s fees are payable.
A copy of the school's terms and conditions are issued with the enrolment form.
