BET comprises seven schools and a sixth form: Bohunt School (also a former TES Secondary and Overall School of the Year) and The Petersfield School (TPS), both Ofsted-rated Outstanding; The Costello School, Priory School, Bohunt Horsham - which opened in 2019 and will be the Trust’s first all-through school - Bohunt Wokingham and Bohunt School Worthing.

BET’s first sixth form opened in Liphook in 2017 and, for the second year running, produced the highest A Level results in the area, with student destinations to top universities including Oxford. BET also provides school improvement support to City Academy Norwich, and is thrilled to confirm that the successful Steyning Grammar School, one of only 36 state boarding schools, is anticipated to join the Trust very shortly.

BET’s vision is that the highest expectations, an ethos of 'enjoy, respect, achieve', unparalleled opportunity and highly effective teaching combine to develop students who are ‘game-changers’. BET aims to give all students, regardless of background, an outstanding education and develop skills in the classroom and beyond; to help young people flourish throughout their school career, and into later life.

BET’s approach to teaching and learning is innovative and immersive – a rich blend of the latest education thinking, technology and practice both in and outside the classroom. The Trust sets the highest expectations for itself and for students, reflected in schools’ results and Ofsted progress.

BET champions cross-Trust and cross-cultural collaboration, with international links including Sweden and China, as well as a flourishing relationship centred around opportunities for less advantaged students with the independent education sector. BET also has a highly successful programme of outdoor education and learning, with students widely participating in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, bushcraft camps and on expeditions to Mongolia, Greenland and the remote Himalayas.
