Bradgate Education Partnership Academy Trust

The Pochin School is part of the Bradgate Education Partnership (BEP).

The Bradgate Education Partnership are a primary and secondary multi academy trust based in Leicestershire. They formed a MAT (of which we are part) on 1 September 2016. They firmly believe in a ‘through’ education model, developing individuals and schools to ensure each pupil has the chance to reach their full potential.

The ethos behind our Trust is one based on autonomy and sustainable school improvement.

All schools within the Trust have equal access to the professional expertise and development opportunities through our teaching school; STEP Teaching School Alliance. The teaching school has been operational since 2014 and not only supports all of the Trust schools, but also the wider area across the Local Authority.

We are part of a unique, forward thinking Trust who value school leaders to lead their own schools with their own retained autonomy. We are fortunate to have a highly skilled Trust Board who are able to support and challenge us to ensure that we achieve our long term goals.

Mission Statement

The Bradgate Education Partnership mission is to create high quality educational opportunities for all children and young people across the partnership by developing a strong collaborative and co-operative model through which we encourage autonomy, share best practice, enhance the professional aspirations of our staff and ensure the safety and well-being of all pupils and staff.
