Beauchamp Middle School

Representatives from Bedford Borough Council have discussed how best to provide education in the area with the emerging two tier education system in Bedford Borough with Governors from Scott Lower School and Beauchamp Middle School.

It has been proposed by the Borough Council that one Primary School is formed across the two sites of the existing Scott and Beauchamp Lower Schools.   This means that all the facilities at both schools merge for the benefit of the pupils and the community.  This is much more preferable to one school building closing and being sold.

To achieve this one school must be a continuing school (although the name of the school formed may be different). Scott Lower School has already consulted on expanding to become a Primary School so the Council is consulting on closing Beauchamp Middle School but retaining the land and buildings to accommodate the new primary school.

This means that pupils currently in years 5, 6 and 7 would transfer to a secondary school in for their year 7, 8 and 9 education in September 2017.  Work is ongoing with the excellent local schools to ensure that the transition is smooth and ensures a continuation of high quality education for all pupils.

School places will be available for pupils when they leave Beauchamp Middle School at the nearby secondary schools which are;

St Thomas More Secondary School,
Mark Rutherford Secondary School
Biddenham Secondary School
Goldington Academy Secondary School 

Castle Newnham Secondary school
