DfE and Head Teacher Board Meeting approves Whiteknights Primary School, Wokingham to join BPET

We are delighted to confirm that The Department for Education (DfE) recently approved BPET to become the sponsors of Whiteknights Primary School, Wokingham, as an academy.

This was ratified at the school’s July Head Teacher Board meeting. So we are now waiting for an Academy Order to be issued at the start of the 2021-22 academic year, when we can begin the conversion and due diligence process.

Whiteknights School is a high performing school in Wokingham, rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. It is one of just 34 English Hubs.

The schools values and ethos align with that of BPET and we look forward to working through the conversion process to welcome them into our Trust.

Whiteknights will become the third school within the Trust to be based in Berkshire, in the Borough of Wokingham. We aim to establish solid links with Evendons Primary School and Braywick Court School so that together they can share, where appropriate, specialist teaching resources and engage in collaboration activities which will benefit both staff and pupils of each school.
