BEK Secondary

Headteacher's Message

Mr Paul Hammond


BEK Secondary

Welcome to BEK Secondary! 

We are an outstanding school providing the internationally recognised Cambridge Curriculum to the Seoul community. Leading to students obtaining IGCSE and A-level qualifications, which act as a gateway to top universities around the world. This year 71% of our students obtained A* grades, combined with a 100% pass rate!

At BEK, we provide a high-quality education that is tailored to the needs of our students. We ensure that all our students have the opportunity to grow both academically and personally, inspiring and challenging them on their educational journey. To facilitate this we have a wonderful team of highly qualified and motivated teachers who endeavour to deliver enriching learning experiences based on the latest educational research and practices, coupled with the best tried and tested pedagogy. 

But more than just achieving top-class academic results we are also committed to ensuring that our pastoral care is of the highest order and that school is an enjoyable experience for every one of our students.

With small class sizes, dedicated homeroom teachers, and a thorough Personal, Social and Health and Economics (PSHE) programme that caters for their well-being, we are there for our students when they face challenges, or celebrate success, and provide a listening ear.

We are proud to be an important part of the local community at BEK Secondary, with teachers, school administrators, students and parents all working and learning together in a safe environment and welcoming partnership. As we prepare our students to strive for achievement and be confident, compassionate and courageous global citizens.

On a more personal note I am delighted to have joined the BEK School family this academic year as the new Secondary Headteacher. I have had the good fortune to be a teacher and school leader in the UK, Japan, Laos, Qatar as well as previously working in Korea a few years ago. So being part of the team here very much feels like coming home, and our school really has that same mutually supportive feel.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school community.
