Who is Bellevue Place Education Trust?
BPET 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 – experienced in running a family of 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.
BPET operates seven Free Schools across London and in Maidenhead. All BPET schools are focused to deliver high quality provision in areas where there is a shortage of primary school places. We have ambitions for responsible growth and was approved by the Department for Education in April 2015 to be an accredited academy sponsor.
Together, these partners form Bellevue Place Education Trust.
As is the case with all free schools, Whitehall Park School will be state-funded and run on a not-for-profit basis.
Bellevue Place Education Trust – Our Vision
Learn, Enjoy, Succeed
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.

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
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.
