Vision and Values

‘Together we empower and believe to thrive and achieve’





We will create and lead a centre of excellence in which the educational and therapeutic needs of young people and adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can be addressed effectively and within a learning environment that is safe, relevant, inclusive and purposefully creative and enjoyable. All contributions and achievements will be recognised and celebrated. The high-quality curriculum will be broad, creative and appropriate with and access to the curriculum driven by individual student need. The Beacon College will treat each of its students with respect and ensure that their rights, needs, aspirations and personal preferences remain central to the school’s organisation and they are empowered to benefit from a meaningful, contributing and rewarding adulthood. Our expertise will be shared to promote awareness, social integration and tolerance within the wider community and promote the best outcomes for all young people and adults with SEN in Herefordshire.
