Beech Hall School, Macclesfield is an independent school in Macclesfield, England and is a member of both IAPS (Independent Association of Preparatory Schools) and ISA (Independent Schools Association)

History[edit]

Beech Hall School was founded in 1926 by Mr W. Edwards as a Preparatory School for Boys.

The site which Beech Hall stands on dates back to the Iron Age, where it would have been used as a defensive site.

In 1969 the swimming pool at Beech Hall School was built, and upon building a clay pot was found buried underneath the earth with some burial bones inside. The pot is now viewable at Beech Hall.

Beech Hall itself is a large country house set in over sixteen acres of wooded grounds. It has been called beech hall since after the turn of the 20th century. In Victorian times it was called Higher Beech.

The house named Beech Hall has been in existence on the site since 1435, when it was the main residence of the Worth family.

In 1966, the school became a limited company and a charitable trust.

In 1981, girls were admitted to the school and one third of the pupils are girls in 2009.[citation needed]

Extracurricular[edit]

School sports include football, hockey, netball and cricket and there are several teams for boys and girls throughout the school.
