Who are Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET)?

BPET is a new model for education delivery in the state sector. Established in 2012, the organisation is a joint venture between two organisations who are passionate about providing high-quality education provision. These two organisations bring together the very best of the fee-paying Independent sector – Bellevue Education Ltd – experiences in running 15 independent schools in the UK and Switzerland; with a highly-regarded education consultancy – Place Group – with experience in the state sector for efficiency of supply in setting up new schools and converting academies, along with driving value for money and compliance. The BPET Board consists equally of these two partner organisations, driving forward education improvement in the schools we work with.

Our Vision


Every BPET child and staff member enjoys a broad (LEARN) and enriched (ENJOY) learning experience, enabling them to achieve far greater individual success (SUCCEED) than they might previously have thought possible.

Our Mission

To grow hubs of like-minded, autonomous schools, well-supported, all of which combine academic rigour with highly enriched opportunities that deliver a personalised approach to education and exceptional outcomes for all.

Our Difference

We are leading the way in delivering high quality education through a skills-based curriculum, applying the best of the independent and state sectors to deliver breadth of opportunity and pupil enrichment. We empower all our schools as individual entities that best meet the needs of the communities they serve and have a strong relationship with parents, who are our key partners in delivering the vision.

Our Promise

Every child is an individual. Our role is to nurture pupils’ potential through a personalised approach to learning. BPET children are happy, independent, confident all-rounders. We encourage a ‘be interested and be interesting’ attitude in children and staff alike. We don’t just teach; we want our pupils to have a passion to learn. Our focus is on all pupils, regardless of background or academic ability, focusing on pupils with Special Educational Needs as well as those who are more-able.

Whiteknights Primary School is overseen and administered by Bellevue Place Education Trust, which is the charitable body that employees the staff, owns the land and sets the admissions arrangements for the school.
