As parents, we all want the very best for our children. It is important that they are encouraged to fulfil their full academic potential, but of equal importance is preparation for the ever changing world beyond education – a world of both challenge and opportunity.

Children today must be prepared to enter a world of technology and innovation – a world that moves at considerable pace. Bethany is the perfect environment for your child’s journey through secondary education. With careful nurturing and guidance it is our aim to equip each child with the skills, knowledge and confidence that will prepare them for their life in a changing world.

I encourage you to see our ethos and aims and vision statement.

Francie Healy
The environment at Bethany is that of a vibrant and caring community which creates a supportive platform from which your child can learn and progress.

We encourage each and every child to think critically, question incisively and solve problems with growing independence. They are guided in their endeavours by teachers who are experts in their respective fields, and who are committed to delivering the very highest standard of learning across a broad, balanced and innovative curriculum.

Beyond the classroom, we offer a vast array of extra-curricular activities to develop and challenge each pupil. Fun, enthusiasm and adventure are important parts of the Bethany experience. The happiness and emotional well-being of our pupils lie at the heart of every decision we make. It is for this reason that my own three children all attended Bethany and so far two have achieved first class honours degrees at their universities.

Please do come and visit us to see first-hand what we have to offer. Call to make an appointment on 01580 211273.

I look forward to meeting you.
