How to Join Us

Joining a multi-academy trust presents several steps. However, there are no formal stages as the process can vary greatly depending on the school's individual circumstances. We have created a rough guide below describing the main check points to go through when converting to academy status.

Discovery phase

If your school's governors are thinking of joining BPET, you should investigate if our vision and what we stand for align with your school's values. This is important as it will define the direction of work we will all strives towards, and if we can work well together.

At this point, we offer a phone call with our Chief Executive, which you can book via info@bpet.co.uk, and a visit to one or two BPET schools in order for you to have an understanding of both day-to-day operations as well as wider strategic aims and objectives.

 Presentation to governing body

Following the discovery phase, BPET will present our work and structure to your school's governing body, so that they can meet members of our senior management team and ask any questions they may have.

Due diligence checks

Following the meeting with your governing body, the school will be able to check BPET's financial position, education performance, Ofsted reports and other top level information they might be interested in.

BPET will also carry out high-level due diligence checks on your educational attainment, financial position, the structure of your operations and HR polices in order to audit the areas that align and the ones which need strengthening.

Formal application

If all the conditions above are satisfactory and agreed, the next step is for your school to formally apply to the Department for Education to join us.

After sign-off

Once the Department for Education has agreed to the conversion, in-depth due diligence will take place, followed by the signing of the supplementary funding agreement, which formalises your entry into our family of schools. You'll be enrolled into our IT systems, such as Arbor, and financial systems such as Planergy, Xero, Tucasi and payroll.
