Beauchamps High School, locally known as Beauchamps, is a mixed intake secondary school and sixth form college for students aged between 11 and 18 (school years 7 to 13) in Wickford, Essex, England. The sixth form offers post 16 education for students aged 16–18 and accepts both former Beauchamps students and students educated at other establishments. The school includes a fairly diverse student population, consisting primarily of British nationals and a small ethnic minority. The current headteacher of the school is Mr Robert Hodges. The previous head was Mr Philip Bell.
The name 'Beauchamps' is French for beautiful fields. The school is located in the town of Wickford in Essex, England, and moved to its present site in 1959. The school was called Beauchamps Grant Maintained School until 1999, when its name was changed to Beauchamps High School. In 2003 it acquired a specialist status as a Business and Enterprise school, and in 2008 it obtained a Vocational status.[clarification needed]
