Welcome to Beech Hall School Alumni |August 2016 events & Key Dates
Alumni News - August 2016


Welcome to the 2nd Edition of our Alumni News and to all members of our Alumni receiving this newsletter for the first time.

The celebrations at Beech Hall have continued during our 90th anniversary year and our 90 events for 90 years. The Summer Term has been particularly busy at the School with our inaugural Beech Hall Summer Festival, which despite the torrential rain, couldn't dampen everyone's spirits; an Olympic torch relay; a whole school promenade performance of A Midsummer Nights Dream; Sports Day on our School Playing Fields, Front Lawn and a Swimming Gala in our newly refurbished swimming pool; followed by a whole school Prize Giving;  our 90th Anniversary Marquee Summer Ball taking us back to the 1920s where it was lovely to see so many Alumni, and the final event was the homecoming of our Team 90490, 7 boys aged 14 and 15 years old who cycled from our sister school, Riverston in Blackheath using only cycle paths and towpaths, 248 miles back to Beech Hall to a ticker tape reception in aid of Park Lane Special School, Macclesfield who are raising funds for the refurbishment of their hydrotherapy pool. The boys (to date) have raised just over £11,000 for the cause, if you wish to make a donation, please go to


Restoration & History

We have loved (and sometimes been intrigued) hearing of people's memories of Beech Hall..
How the cane was used for underachievers - thankfully this is no longer in practice - how the School had a Fives court (The Barker Court), which we hope to restore in the near future to its former glory and will be another welcome re-addition to the Sporting Curriculum; and memories of the annual General Knowledge Quiz, which incidentally, is still run each Easter Holiday break. You can view a copy of the quiz from the 1970s below to test your brain cells - sadly, no prizes for the most correct answers / highest percentage this time round!

Alumni Aims:

At Beech Hall, the Alumni aims to:

  • To support the ethos and community of the school.
  • To provide opportunities for past pupils and their families to maintain or re-establish contact with the School and each other.
