The Beacon Business Innovation Hub is delighted to report exceptional academic and personal progress for our students this summer.
Leavers will be moving onto a host of different destinations including several off to University, apprenticeship programmes, employment and many leaving to join local Sixth Forms and Colleges to continue with their studies.

Principal Trevor Button said:
“All of our students are disengaged with education when they arrive. It is our job to rebuild their trust and faith in the system. During a challenging year we are so proud that every one of our students have made significant progress this year. Our staff have provided continual support, advice and guidance which has resulted in every student having a clear progression route for September. They are all moving onto education, employment or training.”

Lucy Smith will be studying Art at Epping Forest College after achieving a 5 in GCSE Art and a 7 in History. Lucy also achieved grade 3’s in Maths and English despite her fear and anxiety about those subjects when she first joined us.
