Summer Concert

Our Summer Concert was the perfect crescendo to our musical calendar, celebrating our talented, confident and dazzling musicians through band and ensemble performances. We heard classical music, pop, rock, punk and gypsy jazz among others, in what was a very memorable evening.

Little Red Riding Hood

4B did a brilliant job in their production of 'Little Red Riding Hood'. The performance, under the Marquee, was filled with elements of physical theatre, musical interludes and great comedy - well done, 4B!

Super Sunny Sports Day

We had the most wonderful morning on the Playing Fields on Saturday at our Years 5 to 8 Sports Day. We saw multiple school records being broken, and all involved had a brilliant time. Congratulations to our winning House, Rowan!

Year 8s Celebrate

Our Year 8 children have revelled in their final week at Beaudesert. Their days have been spent practising for their Revue performance, playing cricket against their parents, and yesterday evening was their final night boarding. The evening began with a BBQ by the astro, where children and staff could spectate the much anticipated staff and Year 8 tennis match. Congratulations to the winners, Monty H and Miss Winkworth!

The children then spent the evening slipping and sliding down the banks, along with some of our staff... After drying off and changing into pyjamas, they enjoyed a cosy chat, winding down around the firepit. What a way to finish their time in the Boarding House.

Our Year 8 families have very kindly organised for the tree stump behind the MUGA to be transformed into a beautiful wood carving, which has now been completed. The inscription reads 'Play, Climb, Explore. We loved Beaudesert.'; a motto we hope many Beaudesertians will live by.

National Mercia Athletics Final

The National Championships on Wednesday were a marvellous end to our term of athletics, with many fine performances from our Beaudesert team. Tabitha, running with her usual determination and tenacity, was a fine 6th in the 800m. In a large field of twenty, this was a very good run, and set the tone for a successful day. With Savannah also throwing with great consistency for an excellent 6th place in the shot put, we were off to a great start. Sam finished solidly mid pack in a competitive discus event, but he came to the fore in the shot put, throwing three consecutive personal best throws to claim a much deserved bronze medal.

In the sprints, Isla ran fantastically in the 70m hurdles heats to qualify second fastest. She battled hard to the line for a well deserved 6th place, and progressed the finals of the 100m with fighting spirit. Lauren, Willa and Poppy joined Isla in the 100m relay, where the girls finished 6th in a time over 2 second faster than their previous best. Rounding off the day in the 200m, Chloe qualified with confidence in a blistering heat. She broke the 27 second barrier for the second time in the final, and finished in 3rd place. Well done to all who represented Beaudesert Park.

Form Assembly

We really enjoyed 3H's assembly this week, in which they discussed all the wonderful things 'BEAUDESERT' stands for, from 'beautiful' to 'together':








Everyone's included



It was a great assembly to sum up all the amazing things we have done this year!

Me in PE

Well done to our Year 2s who completed their 'Me in PE' sticker charts in PE this year, another rewarding end of year achievement.
