A key strategy in motivating our students to reach high has been to put Beaumont Leys ‘on the map’. Our students and parents love see the school on television and in the local newspaper. We constantly seek opportunities for our work to be reflected in the media and have been fortunate to have been chosen for several high profile schemes:
- In 2009 we were filmed for BBC East Midlands today and Central News for being the first BSF school to open ahead of schedule in the country and the first BSF school to open in the East Midlands.
- In 2009 we did a live broadcast into the annual conference for Partnership For Schools at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London which was attended by 1000 people.
- In 2009 we were filmed being presented with the BSF School of the Year Excellence Award and the overarching Grand Prix award.
- In 2011 we had a royal visit when Prince Edward, Duke of Wessex, came to see the work we were doing with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. We had been identified as having the best completion rate in the East Midlands. We were filmed by BBC East Midlands today.
- In 2012 we were the only secondary school chosen to appear in a promotional film produced by Leicester City Council to promote Leicester schools to parents.
- In 2012 we were filmed for a health promotion DVD on Smoking Mediology which was put on to the City Council’s website
- In 2012 we appeared on BBC East Midlands when we organised a charity Comedy Benefit to raise money for the Stroke Association following one of our students having a stroke in the autumn term.
We will be adding to this part of the website as time goes on.
