The BEACH is a National Teaching School based in North Somerset, serving the South West and beyond.

Holistic, interconnected approach

Success is achieved through “joining up” thinking, sharing ideas and insights across disciplines and activities. Our philosophy and values are visible in everything we do, ensuring that every setting receives what it needs to provide the best possible outcomes for children.

Your way, not 'our way'

We don’t have a prescribed model of doing things.  Our approach is to work with you to develop bespoke solutions, which leverage our skills and experience, but in a way that meet your specific needs.

Collaborative and empowering

We believe strongly in inspiring students, engaging parents and encouraging staff to take ownership of their own challenges. We are there to facilitate, not to instruct.

Where we come from

The BEACH Teaching School Alliance is led by Bournville Primary School, one of the few schools in the UK in an area of coastal deprivation rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, and a finalist in the National Pupil Premium Awards 2015.

We are part of the Extend Learning Academies Network in South West England.
