The Bourne Education Trust is a Surrey-based multi-academy trust made up of eleven schools, including all key stages. The ethos of the Trust puts children at the heart of all that we do. The role of the Trust is to ensure that our students make the most of their opportunities by ensuring that our academies aspire to and reach the highest standards.
The principle of schools working with each other is core to the ethos and operation of the Trust. We are committed to raising standards in all our schools and look to deploy experts to support improvement wherever and whenever it is needed. Staff may be offered secondments, to ensure that the very best practitioners are deployed in the areas of greatest need, whilst enabling ambitious and talented staff to further their experience and gain rapid promotions.
There are many benefits of working with the Trust. These include:
- Coaching and mentoring programmes
- Leadership training and development
- Business management support and development
- Sharing best practice and planning
- Professional partners for new post holders
- Initial teacher training support
- School direct and SCITT trainees
The Board of the BET is determined to see a high performing multi academy trust that delivers the very best educational experience for pupils at both primary and secondary level. The educational landscape continues to change at a fast pace with more schools converting to academies. The information on the website sets out how we will plan, guide, support and improve our academies (and schools that are yet to join), ensuring that there is a clear focus on improving leadership and governance, and teaching and learning, and on raising standards.
