6/9/2021: As all eight BPET schools open their doors to pupils today for the start of the 2021-22 academic year it is a milestone moment for the Trust … for the first time every school in the group has a full cohort from Reception to Year 6!
Created in 2013 with the opening of Rutherford House School, Balham, the group has seven original free schools across London and Berkshire. Our eighth school, Evendons Primary in Wokingham, joined us in 2020 which was the year for their first year six leavers. This July, 2021, saw first Year six leavers for Braywick Court, Maidenhead and Whitehall Park, Islington,
However today our four youngest school’s, who all opened in 2015, joined the others by having classes from Reception through to Year Six. As a group, today we welcomed 2,430 pupils across the eight schools.
We wish every single pupil a fantastic year and we know out Year six cohorts are already thinking about and planning for the transition to secondary school. Our teaching teams are giving support for entrance examinations, scholarship interviews and working towards the 2022 SATs which are due to take place in the summer term.
