The St John’s Beaumont School Magis Programme is a vehicle for championing some of the most important aspects of being a Jesuit School; a community interested in sharing and learning and putting those lessons to good use.

We invite visiting speakers on a weekly basis to come and talk to our boys about the world outside St John’s and areas in which they play a leading role.

Currently, the Magis programme is mostly held with speakers talking to our Upper School boys on Zoom, on Wednesdays between 3.40 pm and 4.40 pm.
