Beechen Cliff School is a boys` secondary school in Bath, Somersetmarker, in Englandmarker. There are around 800 boys in years 7–11 and a co-educational sixth form of over 200 students. The school is located just south of the city centre near Alexandra Park, up a hill from Bear Flatmarker which is on the closest bus route.


The school began in 1903 as the City of Bath Boys' School in the Guildhall, Bath, and moved to its present site in 1932. It changed to its present name in 1972 when the grammar school was amalgamated with Oldfield Boys' School, a local secondary modern school, to form a comprehensive school.

A review of Bath secondary provision by Avon County Council in the 1980s led to proposals for the school to be closed and replaced with a sixth-form college on the same site serving the whole city. Partisans of the school, however, took advantage of new legislation to obtain grant-maintained status for the school, taking it out of local authority control, which the then Government permitted despite a policy that schools would not be allowed to use grant-maintained status as a way of avoiding closure.

Beechen Cliff School acquired specialist Technology College status in 1997 and with the demise of grant-maintained status became a Foundation school with similar characteristics.


The school uniform consists of a blazer, trousers, shirt and a striped tie (blue, red and yellow).
