Our Classes



Beacon School currently runs classes from Playgroup to Year 11. Plans are in place to offer classes to Year 13 (A’ level students only) once appropriate facilities have been developed.

Beacon School is a Cambridge International School, (www.cambridgeinternational.org) offering the Cambridge Checkpoint exam at the end of Year 9 and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) at the end of Year 11. We also offer the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) at the end of JHS3. At the end of Year 6 (Class 5) students are required to choose between the Cambridge International programme or the local BECE curriculum. Boarding facilities are available for Secondary students only

Maximum class size is 25 pupils. In lower classes the class teacher is helped by a full-time teaching assistant. Class placement is dependent on a child’s age as at August 31st, but not on academic ability. Within the class, differing levels of assessment provide differentiated learning.

Our Curriculum



Beacon School is a private, international, Christian basic school registered under Ghana Education Service of the Ministry of Education. We offer a combination of Ghana Education Service curriculum and the English National Curriculum.

  • Preschool

    With a large variety of educational resources and games at their disposal, teachers in our preschool adopt a
    more sensorial, creative approach to learning, with both focused times with the teacher and opportunities for independent learning.

  • Electives – From Year 10

    (Economics, Business Studies, Enterprise etc.)

  • Early Research Skills

    Independent Research Projects – from Primary 3, all children undertake an independent research project.
    Children often choose the research topics themselves. The project is presented as an extended written assignment, followed by an oral presentation to a wider group.
