Evendons Primary School joins BPET

30 January 2020: We are delighted to announce that Evendons Primary School, Berkshire, will join Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET) on 1 February 2020.

Opened in September 2014, Evendons Primary School is a very successful Free School in Wokingham. Driven by the energy and passion of local parents, it has gone from strength to strength and in June 2017 was rated by OfSTED to be an Outstanding school.

July 2019 saw the first year group to complete Year 6 with pupils achieving average results in their core subject areas and benefitting from a rich, outdoor curriculum with a core focus on STEM subjects.  Their STEM focus premeditates through teaching and learning and is a key strength of the school.

Over the past two years, Evendons have been seeking a multi academy trust to join, recognising that there is greater security and opportunity by being part of a Trust than a stand-alone Free School. Bellevue Place was chosen as the preferred Trust in the autumn of 2019 and the transfer process has gone very smoothly.

BPET Chief Executive Mark Greatrex said “Evendons will enrich the Bellevue Place group and being close, geographically, to Braywick Court School, Maidenhead we anticipate the development a local partnership within the wider multi academy trust.  This will benefit all the pupils we serve and promote greater staff development opportunities as a group of schools.”

Bellevue Place Education Trust are now a multi academy trust of eight schools across London and Berkshire, educating 2,030 pupils who are supported by 283 members of staff.
