Bellevue Place Education Trust
Learn, Enjoy, Succeed
Our Multi-Academy Trust successfully opened seven new primary schools to support communities with excellent education across London and Maidenhead, with a new converter that joined in January 2020.
Our vision is for all pupils and staff to enjoy a broad and enriched learning experience, enabling them to achieve far greater individual success than they might previously have thought possible. All our schools are focused on delivering a high-quality provision in areas where there is a shortage of primary school places.
Our pupils continue to achieve strong outcomes across our schools:
- 80% of pupils across BPET schools achieved a Good Level of Development, 8% above the 2019 national average of 72%
- 91% of pupils passed the phonics screening in Year 1 – 9% above the 2019 national average of 82%.
