BECSLink’s role as the social mobility network, together with their partners, are helping us supply outstanding resources and learning opportunities for students and teachers not only from Lichfield Cathedral School, but also from other local schools.
— Sue Hannam, Headteacher

Lichfield Cathedral School is a flourishing coeducational independent day school in Staffordshire.  Our school community is based on core values of learning, faith, leadership and service, whose purpose is to educate and inspire young people to become confident, enthusiastic and diligent members of society.

We foster a sense of responsibility and understanding, encouraging pupils and students to recognise the part they have to play in the world on a local and an international scale.

We achieve this through our status as Lichfield Cathedral School BECSLink Community Hub which is:

  • a focal point for a locally united education sector;

  • supported by the expertise and resources of suitable partners; and

  • working with aligned businesses and social investors

Through the development of a network of united schools and in unison with our Business and Charitable partners, our aim is to inspire young people to develop their skills, talents and character through a wide range of activities, to use their curiosity and creativity to find new ways of achieving their potential and to have the confidence, drive and resilience to follow their dreams. We want students to have the opportunity to:

  • Experience the Arts and Culture

  • Experience live sporting events

  • Visit British places/regions outside their local community

  • Experience cultures and countries outside the UK

  • Be a good neighbour in their local community

  • Gain valuable experience of work

  • Develop their character

  • Make a positive contribution to society

  • Develop lifelong interests

  • Develop skills for life

  • Learn outside the classroom

We continue to achieve this through our extensive enrichment programme which has impacted over:

3,100 students + 64 teachers

from 82 schools

in the last 2 years

This is the kind of learning and a model we need to encourage for society
