Welcome

Bellevue Place Education Trust

Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET) is a multi academy trust that maintains nine primary schools across London and Berkshire. Our core purpose is to maintain successful state funded schools.

BPET was established in 2012 as a joint venture between two organisations who are passionate about providing high quality education. These two organisations bring together the very best of the fee-paying independent sector – Bellevue Education International Ltd – experienced in running a family of 25 independent schools in the UK, France and Switzerland; with a highly-regarded education consultancy – Place Group Consulting Ltd – who have been setting up new state schools for 15 years as well as ensuring schools compliantly procure best value goods and services in order to run effective back office environments in schools.

Our schools also offer a vast number of activities in our extra-curricular provision, with 285 before and after school clubs being run across the trust. 65% of all our pupils take part in at least one club a week, which further enriches their access to a wide curriculum offer.

Positive parental survey results in 2022

Parental support for our schools continues to be very positive. Here are our findings following our annual parents survey across all BPET schools:

  • 96% of parents and carers strongly agree or agree that their child enjoys coming to school (equal to 2021)

  • 90% ranked their response as highly likely or likely to recommend their school to friends (up 1%)

  • 92% of parents and carers strongly agree or agree that their school’s values and attitudes have a positive effect on their child (down 1%)

  • 93% of parents and carers strongly agree or agree that their school develops their child’s independence and responsibility (up 2%)

  • 90% of parents and carers are satisfied with the leadership and management of their school (up 4%)

These survey results are important to us and will feed into our planning for the next academic year, ensuring that our educational offer meets the needs for the communities we serve.
