About Us

For 25 years our mission has been to transform educational performance across our local communities. By providing the best quality teaching, fostering ambition and showing our students that through hard work they can achieve their dreams, we ensure that a BWT education is life enhancing.

Based in the East Midlands, our family of ten state primary and secondary schools collectively educates more than 7000 students each year. From pre-school to sixth form we are experts in all areas of 3-18 education and have a long history of helping young people move on to the next stage of their lives fully prepared and ready to succeed.

All of our work is guided by our five core values:

  • Ambition for all
  • High expectations
  • Excellent teaching and support
  • Working together
  • Contribution to society.

These values are the bedrock of our Trust and have helped us to establish the area’s top ranking secondary school and one of the country’s first outstanding free schools.

As a student at a BWT school our young people are given experiences that are unusual to the state school environment. We run the BWT Combined Cadet Force, which brings together students from across our five secondary schools and we have also created the Sports Ambassadors programme which is encouraging more of our students to become involved in sport.

Our young people are also part of a wider family as our schools have regular inter trust gatherings and competitions.

BWT staff are passionate about teaching and want to make a difference. They regularly exceed the expected limits to ensure that our students are achieving their potential and through our first class Brooke Weston Teaching School Alliance we provide them with excellent training to ensure their skills remain at the leading edge of current practice.

We are proud to be a Trust that innovates, challenges and regularly out-performs.
