Beaconhurst pupils typically achieve at a higher level than the national average for exam results. However, an education at Beaconhurst is about much more than that and we encourage each individual to discover their own pathway, whether that be Academics, Expressive Arts, Sports, Outdoor Education, or other.
Importantly, our leavers achieve the qualifications they set out to obtain and whilst a high percentage go on to university, our leavers move on to a diverse range of destinations, whether that be Higher or Further Education, entering the world of work or seeking adventure during a year out.
For Beaconhurst leavers in recent years, qualifications have included degrees in the most sought after courses at top Scottish and English Universities, such as Medicine, Veterinary Science, Law, Criminology, Engineering, Languages and Astrophysics. We also regularly have leavers going to Oxbridge Universities.
Beaconhurst has a strong record of leavers going into the Arts, gaining degrees from Glasgow and Edinburgh Schools’ of Art, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and other degree routes for Performing Arts.
We have also had a number of sporting scholars leave for American and British universities and colleges in our key sports of tennis, golf and triathlon. A number of our pupils go on to Modern Business Apprenticeships, International Volunteering or into Work Placements. We are very proud of all our leavers and the choices they make.
