Beaudesert Park School is an independent school situated in extensive grounds in the countryside just outside Minchinhampton on the famous ancient common there. Since 2012 we have been organising an annual programme of pupil linking visits which enable Widden pupils to spend a day at this school and then to welcome the children from Beaudesert for a day at Widden.
The children from both schools always get a lot out of these visits as they learn about the differences in our environments and facilities but also the similarities that make learning exciting and enriching in both.
The exchange of ideas between staff in the two schools is also very valuable and we were very pleased that Fiona Womersley, who was Beaudesert’s Designated Safeguarding Lead for many years, joined our school’s governing body in 2016, and Clare Thomas, Beaudesert’s Data and MIS Manager joined in 2018.
We are keen to keep our existing links in the years ahead and are exploring opportunities to develop them further for the benefit of the children and staff in both schools. Follow the link below to visit Beaudesert's own website
