Working in partnership to ensure that every child’s success is at the heart of all we do

Welcome to our site!

Message from our CEO Nicola Nelson BA (hons) PGCE NPQH

 I am delighted to welcome you to the BCET website. Hopefully within these pages you will be able to gain an insight into our vision and values. We really only care about one thing at BCET and that is providing a world class education for all of the children in our schools.

Having worked in education for 23 years and as a school leader in high schools and primary schools for 14 years, I understand that each individual school has its own unique community. I also understand that there are certain common, key elements that can ensure a schools success.

These include:

  • an absolute commitment to a vision for both academic excellence and the development of 'character';
  • employing the best people in our organisation: at BCET, we only employ the best people because nothing else is good enough for our pupils.

We only want to work with inspirational people because we want, in turn, to inspire the children we teach. The leaders in our schools all share the same drive and determination to achieve above and beyond.

Education has the power to change lives. As you will see from our mission page, everything that we do at BCET is underpinned by an ethos of being positive and resilient so that our pupils can develop the right ‘mind-set’ to become successful and happy in the 21st century.

As Director of Education for BCET, I am dedicated to ensuring that no child is left behind and that every child fulfils and exceeds their potential, whatever their starting points.
