Our School has been graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted following a two-day inspection in December 2019, previously we were graded ‘Requires Improvement’ in 2017. Our new rating is on the back of our best ever set of results in 2019 and strongest ever recruitment period. We are very proud that Ofsted wrote ‘Leaders create a calm place of safety where students, previously ‘switched off’ from education, are now learning’. Another year of improved outcomes at the Beacon Business Innovation Hub! Above national averages for Alternative Provision, good passes in English and maths has doubled. At Level 3, all but one course achieved a 100% A* to C pass rate and four students achieved the UCAS points to progress to University! 79% of Year 11 students met or exceeded their expected grades.    Plumbing Level 2 has begun with Level 1 starting after half term. This course is taking place at a training centre in Romford.

Welcome to Beacon Business Innovation Hub

Welcome to Beacon Business Innovation Hub, an Alternative Provision Free school that opened in September 2014 with a unique, creative curriculum for 14 – 19 year olds. BBIH is co-located at the heart of the Beacon Campus. The state-of-the-art learning space was designed to mirror a professional and contemporary, working environment and officially opened in October 2015.
The curriculum vision is not about equivalence, but a different type of success that provides aspirational work related, occupational pathways and progression routes tailored to suit individual student needs. This is underpinned by our support structure that puts young people at the heart of their future success.

BBIH is wholly committed to the principles of personalised learning, both in terms of supporting learners to explore the curriculum from a variety of different starting points, and establishing a community which fosters the development of young people into emotionally, socially and intellectually mature individuals by:

  • Maximising achievement through personalised learning in a positive culture of respect, independence, and personal responsibility
  • All students will be supported to achieve their basic entitlement of good English & maths GCSE qualifications, if not achieved already
  • Maximise support by removing barriers to learning and increasing the opportunities for all students to achieve
  • Maximising learning through curriculum innovation and quality
  • Ensuring meaningful progression opportunities for all our students
  • Maximising respect to engender a calm environment of mutual respect and responsibility

In conclusion, BBIH’s key priority is to hook the hearts and minds of students with a student driven curriculum that relates to their ‘real lives’ and aspirations.
