Our schools provide an excellent education for children from ages 3-19.
A key feature of our success is our willingness to collaborate and desire to achieve the best for every child.
The advantages of being part of BCAT are numerous. These include a coherent provision across primary and secondary phases, the opportunity for curriculum alignment and the benefits of shared expertise across schools, allowing all to benefit from the best pedagogical practice and specialist subject expertise from across the Trust.
We want all of our schools to be able to focus fully on outstanding teaching and learning. To this end, we provide expert advice and guidance and strong central professional services in financial management, resource purchasing, service contracts, HR, marketing and a common policy framework.
Therefore, membership of BCAT leads to great benefits for membership schools and their pupils, through strong collaboration, savings in time and money and the security and stability resulting from the considerable strengths and depth of the Trust. All of this can be achieved without schools losing their independence and individual character.
