What our staff say

Sarah Burge – Newly appointed Subject Leader

Sarah Burge“I used to work in a very small girls independent school. Upon my move to The Beacon School as Subject Lead for Geography in September 2016, I was a little apprehensive about joining such a large school and multi academy trust. I needn't have worried, this has been the best career move I've ever made; every member of the team has made me feel very welcome and it's fantastic to be part of such a wonderful forward thinking, dynamic and caring academy. It really is a great place to work.”

 

 

 

Alex Leman-Lawrie - NQT

Alex Leman LawrieThis is my second term working as a science teacher at the Beacon School and I am thoroughly enjoying my experiences here. The workload is demanding compared to that of the PGCE, but due to the close support and comradery from all staff, the challenge is manageable. There is always someone to talk to about planning lessons and to be able to draw on their experience of what has worked well in invaluable.

The school ethos promotes high standards and relentlessness. This has rubbed off onto the students and is reflected in their work. The school provides a safe, nurturing environment that is formal but relaxed. This allows the students to find their own path and develop as individuals.

The good facilities at the school allow me to plan and teach engaging and dynamic lessons that capture the imagination and interest of the pupils. Their willingness to learn and enthusiasm to take part in the lessons makes behaviour management easy to manage.

The continued professional development provided by the school encourages me to try new styles of teaching, to reflect on my teaching and modify my practices so they honed for the future. Helping with Science club after school allows the pupils to really participate fully in the development of their scientific inquiry.

I can safely say that The Beacon School has made a truly positive impact on me which is reflected in the quality of my teaching. I am eagerly looking forward to what the future will hold for both myself and the students I teach.

 

Maryam Rahman – NQT

MaryamI began working at the Beacon School in June 2016, this being the start of my NQT year. Whilst at The Beacon School I have been given the opportunity to attend a range of PDP programmes specifically designed for the development of my teaching practice.  As an NQT at the school I have received great deal of support from members of staff in all departments as well as other NQT’s at the school. My department and mentor are extremely encouraging and friendly, providing me with ongoing support.

I have found teaching at The Beacon School is a mixture of both encouraging and challenging all pupils in their learning with an emphasis on resilience. This has introduced me to a novel yet exciting way of teaching. One of the greatest advantages of working at the Beacon school is the advice given to me by my mentor as well as others in my department on how to effectively manage my time. I have also been encouraged to develop my teaching practice and subject knowledge through observing other members of staff; this has given me the confidence to use a range of teaching strategies with success. My mentor an exceedingly experienced teacher has provided me with constructive feedback, this has been extremely valuable to me, and this has also helped my confidence in the classroom.

Faced with the many challenges during my NQT year working at The Beacon School has been highly enjoyable and enhanced my professional development. The experience is an incredibly enriching one.

 

Keira Bullman – NQT

" As an NQT, joining a group of schools has been an invaluable experience. Whilst the schools that I have visited have all been within GLF, they have each had their own areas of expertise and have offered different opportunities and experiences. I have also received excellent mentoring and support this year - and not just from my NQT mentor, but from colleagues across GLF. I have felt very well supported this year and I have enjoyed being an active member of the staff and school community within my own school and across GLF as a whole."
