St John’s Beaumont School is proud to be different; not merely because it is the only Roman Catholic independent boys’ preparatory school west of London, but because it is part of the spiritually and culturally rich tradition of Jesuit education.
You will find St John’s nestled in the historic countryside near Windsor and Eton, set on a 70-acre country estate. The vast grounds provide endless space for exploration, sports and play; a place where boys can be boys. Since 1888, the school has developed the environment, pastoral support and learning tools that enable young men to flourish. Jesuit education centres on the development of the whole child. Your son’s moral and spiritual growth, alongside his intellectual development, remains the school’s abiding focus. His evolution into a critical, compassionate and reflective young man is the ultimate goal. St John’s is a very special place for boys to learn and live.
Pupils are offered every possible opportunity to excel in a wide variety of areas, both academically, but importantly also in the wider curriculum as well. Whether in art, sport, music or drama, the school’s aim is to open a boy’s mind to his innate potential. The results are prevalent in the large amount of scholarships St John’s boys achieve at some of the most prestigious schools in the country, including neighbouring Eton, Harrow, Winchester, and Charterhouse, just to name a few.
St John’s Beaumont provides the perfect home away from home for those who choose to board through either a tailored, weekly, or full-boarding programme from Year 4 onwards. Boarding at St John’s has a little bit of Hogwarts magic; with nooks and crannies, secret stairways and woods to explore, the school is the perfect place for imaginative adventures. Boarders enjoy the full use of the school’s extensive facilities as they go for an early morning swim, a jog with the Headmaster or beat their dormitory master at a game of tennis. In their spare time, the boys love activities like; den-building in the woods, cooking on the campfire, stargazing and glow-in-the-dark hide-and-seek.
