Welcome to the Beacon Academy Loughborough


Making our best better

What we believe that this means to us is that all children:

Gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to fulfil their potential and strive to exceed this daily in all that they do. Develop a love of learning and enjoy their time at the Academy through a creative and innovative curriculum and use of new ideas and technology. Make lifelong friends and develop a respect for all in our community with our inclusive provision where every child has a personalised learning journey. Have a variety of exciting experiences and develop their understanding of the wider world, enjoy enterprise experiences and skills to broaden their horizons.

We will work closely with families, the Academies Enterprise Trust, the local community, our network of schools and Academies in this shared endeavour.

Message from Mark Roberts, Executive Headteacher

It is with great pride and privilege that I introduce myself to you as Executive Head of Beacon Academy.  I have already experienced, in the very short time I have been here, a vibrant, purposeful and positive atmosphere where every child is treated as an individual, where every child is encouraged to fulfil their potential and where every child matters.


The staff at Beacon are professional, dedicated and hardworking and I am delighted to be joining colleagues who share my passion for ensuring our pupils are equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence that will enable them to play a full and active role in the modern world.


I look forward to working with staff, pupils and parents in the coming months and supporting the Academy in sustaining the rapid progress made in recent months.

  • Academy Closed due to power failure Due to an electrical failure at the school we have taken the decision to close the academy early at 1PM today. Children can be collected at 1PM from their normal collection point. Any parents who are unable to collect at this time can collect at their normal home time from the youth club building which remains unaffected by the power cut. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
